Music-themed restaurant, hotel and casino brand Hard Rock International has launched a global campaign on hunger with a fund-raising compilation album.

The "Imagine There's No Hunger" campaign will raise funds for WHY, a non-profit organization that fights hunger and poverty around the world.

It includes the release of Hard Rock's third compilation album with WHY, "SERVE3," to which Yoko Ono has donated John Lennon's "Give Peace A Chance." Other artists donating rare, new or previously unreleased tracks to the album include Bruce Springsteen, Avril Lavigne, Joss Stone, Run DMC, Starsailor and My Morning Jacket.

"SERVE3" is being exclusively marketed and digitally distributed by The Orchard via iTunes, all major digital stores and www.hardrock.com. It was also made available as a CD, issued via Hard Rock International, in the global restaurant chain from Nov. 4.
