A rare Peter Gabriel song and a collaboration between former Police drummer Stewart Copeland and System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian highlight a new compilation called 2 Unite All, a benefit album to raise funds for humanitarian aid to Palestinians in Gaza.The album, which is out now, is produced by an organization called Project Peace On Earth.

Gabriel’s song has been out of print for years (although a live version is available on his Secret World Live DVD); “Across The River” was originally released on the 1982 WOMAD compilation Music and Rhythm and also features Copeland.

In a press release, Gabriel spoke of his decision to participate.

“Although I am sure both the Palestinian and Israeli people would benefit enormously from a just and fair two-state agreement based around the ’67 borders, we have watched the Palestinians subjected to more and more suffering for far too long, especially in Gaza,” he said. “Meanwhile their long held land is repeatedly stolen by force for illegal settlements. I am not and have never been anti-Israeli or anti-Semitic; I am anti-Israeli government policy, anti-injustice, anti-oppression and anti-occupation.
