In celebration of the ten-year anniversary of Brandi Carlile’s album The Story, the singer-songwriter is releasing Cover Stories: Brandi Carlile Celebrates 10 Years of The Story- An Album to Benefit War Child. The album drops May 5 via Legacy Recordings.

The album includes contributions from Jim James, Adele, Dolly Parton and more. Adele’s version of “Hiding My Heart” was originally created as a bonus track on 21, released in 2011. The record even features a foreword from Barack Obama.

All proceeds will benefit War Child UK, which aims to rebuild lives in war zones by offering education and protection services for children in Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Jordan, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Central African Republic.

Carlile will tour this spring and perform The Story in its entirety during the shows.
