In honor of (RED)’s 15th anniversary, Mavin Records and (RED) have joined forces to launch DANCE (RED) SAVE LIVES Vol. III, a new Afrobeats-inspired album that raises money for the Global Fund COVID-19 Response.
Released on April 2, 2021, this highly anticipated album was curated by legendary Afrobeats producer Don Jazzy and musical artist Aluna, DANCE (RED) SAVE LIVES features “fourteen fun, energetic tracks guaranteed to get you pumped up and dancing,” according to the folks at (RED). The album includes remixes from Aluna, Felix Da Housecat, Chris Trucher, Michael Brun, Sofi Tukker, TOKiMONSTA, Vitamin String Quartet, Virgil Abloh, and many more. Mavin Records and (RED) have also released a feature track from the album as a single, Rema’s “Woman” (Sofi Tukker Remix).
The complete album is available to stream and download worldwide with proceeds going to support (RED)’s efforts to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on life-saving HIV/AIDS programs in sub-Saharan Africa. You can find DANCE (RED) SAVE LIVES on Apple Music, Spotify, iTunes, YouTube Music, Napster, and Tidal.
In addition to the album itself, you can also support (RED) by purchasing DANCE (RED) SAVE LIVES t-shirts and caps. Select items in the collection feature the official DANCE (RED) SAVE LIVES Vol. III album artwork by Brooklyn-based Nigerian artist Laolu Senbanjo. Laolu’s signature work has also been interpreted into a limited-edition facemask for protection from the coronavirus. The complete DANCE (RED) SAVE LIVES merch collection is available for purchase worldwide, at https://shop-red-originals.myshopify.com/.
Collaborating with partners such as Amazon, Apple, and Bank of America, (RED) products have raised over $650 million in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Funds raised through this album and the related merchandise will be used to help prevent COVID-19 from derailing critical progress made in the AIDS fight.
