Willie Nelson, Carlos Santana and Del Castillo are some of the artists featured on "Claro Que Se Puede," a new pro-immigrant track to be released next month.

The track will appear on "Proyecto de Amor" ("project of love"), a 13-track album produced by the Hermes Music Foundation and set for release this fall. The song will be released to digital retail in July and will be recorded in four versions: the original, which features Santana, Del Castillo and a little help on vocals from Maná; regional Mexican, featuring Ramon Ayala, Cardenales de Nuevo León and Intocable leader Ricky Muñoz; rock, with El Tri's Alex Lora; and an English version with Willie Nelson and Del Castillo. Clips of the versions can be heard here.

Proceeds from the album's sale will benefit the Hermes Music Foundation, whose leader, songwriter Alberto Kreimerman, wrote the track along with labor activist Dolores Huerta, co-founder with Cesar Chavez of United Farm Workers.

The Hermes Music Foundation, which raises funds for children's health programs in Mexico, will split the proceeds with Huerta's social justice and community organizing foundation. Discussions are under way with a major label to distribute the album, according to the organization.
