Wilco, Franz Ferdinand, Hot Hot Heat and Interpol are among the artists that have contributed rare or previously unreleased tracks to a double-disc compilation that will raise funds for Asian tsunami relief.

The 26-track set sprang from a partnership with Filter magazine and Urban Outfitters, which will on Feb. 28 begin exclusively selling the album at its retail outlets and Web site. The UNICEF Tsunami Relief Fund will receive 100% of the proceeds from sales of the collection.

Among the notable inclusions here are Interpol's "Slow Hands" remixed by Spoon's Britt Daniel, Franz Ferdinand's "Matinee" remixed by Headman and previously unreleased tracks from Hot Hot Heat ("Apt. 101"), Rilo Kiley ("American Wife"), Clinic ("Fingers") and Earlimart ("Lullaby").

Live tracks have been turned in by Wilco ("Jesus, Etc."), My Morning Jacket ("The Bear"), the Futureheads ("Piece of Crap") and French Kicks ("The Trial of the Century"), while the Queens Of The Stone Age track "Hangin' Tree" is presented in an early version recorded as part of the Desert Sessions series.

In related news, Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard will join with Sun Kil Moon/Red House Painter leader Mark Kozelek, Jonathan Richman and Crooked Fingers' Eric Bachmann tomorrow (Jan. 28) for a tsunami relief benefit at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall.
