to benefit Gulf Coast residents still suffering the effects of last year's hurricanes. This Sunday, February 5,

iTunes

Joseph Arthur

ballad "In The Sun," featuring Stipe with guest singers and remixers, including Coldplay's Chris Martin, ex-Smashing Pumpkin James Iha, Black Eyed Peas's will.i.am, Arthur himself, and for some reason Justin Timberlake. Profits will go toward

The Mercy Corps

, whose relief programs currently reach 7 million people in more than 35 countries.
