Download to Donate for Haiti is a compilation album by various artists. It was released on January 19, 2010 through Machine Shop and Warner Bros. Records. The album was produced by Mike Shinoda and co-produced by Enrique Iglesias. American rock band Linkin Park started a project called Music for Relief in 2005, which has done relief work for the Indian Ocean Tsunami in 2005, the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami and Hurricane Sandy in 2013. Linkin Park released a single for the album titled as "Not Alone", which was recorded for their third studio album Minutes to Midnight, as the first and introductory track on this album. The single was released almost after two years of the release of the album, due to the release of their fourth album A Thousand Suns. This album is one of the albums released via Download to Donate.

Background[edit]

The project was started by Music for Relief, who is working alongside United Nations Foundation, Habitat for Humanity and the Dave Matthews Band's BAMA Works to provide food, water, medical supplies and sustainable housing for those affected by the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Mike Shinoda and Enrique Iglesias promoted the compilation on Larry King Live.[2] The compilation has raised around $270,000 with 115,000 downloads.[3]

Composition[edit]

The album consists of various genres, but mainly it includes synth rock. There are few songs which have a alternative touch in it. Songs like "Typical Situation", "Times Like These" and "Gargoyle" are live versions of the original songs, and songs like "The Wind Blows", "Slipstream" and "Gold Guns Girls" are remixes by artists Skrillex and Shinoda.
