‘S.O.S. (Save Our Studio) A Benefit Album’ is a new 49-track disc pulled together to support the revitalization of The Compound Studio, a studio frequented by a bevy of musicians in Southern California including Pearl Jam’s own Mike McCready.

McCready joined forces with some musical friends to contribute a track to the disc under the moniker Mike McCready and Friends. The track is titled ‘Fall Down’ and can be heard below.

McCready’s longtime friend Robbie Allen provides vocals and bass on the track in addition to Antoine on drums, Lexi on vocals, and  Mike Malone on the organ. The song shows off a totally different side of McCready.

The studio has issued a statement about the benefit disc, saying:

A battle cry, and these warriors stepped forward. Like so many studios The Compound has been digging deep into debt for a few years now and we had considered closing the doors for good. Until word got around and we brainstormed the idea of creating a compilation record to raise funds and raise awareness. The response has been overwhelming, leaving us truly humbled.

The outpouring of love and generosity has been like a wave of sonic rain drenching us with a new faith in our community and ourselves. Our thanks to everyone involved in taking this project from seed to structure (a pdf booklet is included with download for credit-where-credit-is-due).

The full disc is available for a minimum donation of 11.99 here.

McCready and his mainstay Pearl Jam are anticipating a 2013 release date for their new disc and the band has just a few select concert appearances in 2012 including the Philadelphia-based Made in America Music Festival, which is being curated by rap superstar Jay-Z.
