New York, NY (December 3, 2018)  -- In 2017, members of the creative community announced 7-inches for Planned Parenthood, a curated series of 7-inch vinyl records released as a box set and digital downloads to benefit Planned Parenthood. Musicians, artists, poets, and others took time to contribute to the project, raising awareness of the essential health care Planned Parenthood provides to patients every day, all across the country.

Today, the collective announces Vol. 2 - Pt. 1 -- a new split single, the A-Side being the previously unreleased song “All I Want” by The National’s Matt Berninger and Stephan Altman featuring Julien Baker. The song made its live premiere this past Friday when Berninger and Altman joined Baker at her sold out boygenius show at LA’s The Wiltern. Watch a fan’s video of the performance HERE.

The release also features Hanif Abdurraqib performing his poem “Defiance, Ohio is the Name Of A Band” as a B-Side. The single’s artwork, titled “Crimson sun, blue heart” is provided by Emma Kohlmann, and created in watercolor and sumi ink. The single will be available for purchase and streaming on December 14th. Stay tuned for more announcements on both the digital and physical version of Volume 2 and visit 7inchesforplannedparenthood.com for more information and to pick up a copy of Volume 1.

On the next phase of the project, Matt Berninger said, “7-inches for Planned Parenthood is essentially an independently run record label devoted entirely to protecting sexual and reproductive rights. Thanks to the huge community of people who helped launch Volume 1, we are very excited to launch Volume 2.”

“We’re incredibly grateful to have the support of so many artists and entertainers, many of whom have themselves been patients at Planned Parenthood, just like one in five women in America” said Dr. Leana Wen, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “Planned Parenthood has provided quality health care and education for over 100 years, including cancer screenings, well-women visits and the full range of reproductive care - including birth control and abortion. Planned Parenthood has stood defiantly in the face of opposition for a century, along with our partners, and we’re not backing down now.”

The inaugural 7-inches for Planned Parenthood box set includes new or never released tracks from Foo FightersSharon Van Etten and Sleater-Kinney, as well as exclusive performances from comedians Jenny SlateZach Galifianakis and Tig Notaro, spoken word by Dr. Willie Parker and Margaret Atwood, collaborations from St. Vincent and John Legend, and so much more.
