Listen to the new Red Hot compilation curated by The National

Until its release on February 17th, The Red Hot Organisation – an international charity dedicated to raising funds and awareness for HIV and AIDS, founded on the premise that even without a cure, AIDS remains a preventable disease and music is a great vehicle to raise money and awareness for it – will be streaming one new song a day from their latest project Dark Was The Night; curated by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National, who have gathered together an impressive group of artists and a total of 32 exclusive tracks recorded for the compilation.
