Habitat for Humanity, Nonesuch Records Team Up to Release Benefit Album

450x450bbNEW ORLEANS – New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity and Nonesuch/Warner Records announce the release of a remastered, special vinyl edition of the 2005 record Our New Orleans, a tribute album original recorded and released in the months after Hurricane Katrina that raised money to build the Habitat Musician’s Village and the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music. The two-LP set, also available digitally, includes five previously unreleased tracks.

 Proceeds from the re-release will again benefit New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity.

Our New Orleans is a testament to the power of music to heal and provide a sense of community,” said Marguerite Oestreicher, executive director of New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity. “Musicians helped the city heal after Hurricane Katrina, and Musicians’ Village helped them come home. We’re grateful to Nonesuch and everyone who worked on this album. This year has brought new challenges to everyone, but especially to our culture-bearers. This re-release could not be more timely.”
