‘Manchester With Love‘ is a new charity compilation album raising funds for the Red Cross I Love Manchester Emergency Fund, as well as celebrating Manchester’s diverse and unifying music scene and heritage.
In the hours, days and weeks following May’s terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena, the city pulled together demonstrating admirable spirit, unity and love. Manchester With Love is a “collective contribution from the city’s music community, showing the city’s diversity through music, from seminal bands through to the newest up and coming producers”.
The album features 226 tracks from acts across an huge span of genres, featuring previously released and unheard music coming from a range of internationally revered artists and local talents, all hailing from Manchester. The mix includes punk pioneers The Buzzcocks, budding producer/DJ Illum Sphere, dance duo 808 State, and post-punk legends A Certain Ratio.
