Dharamsala, October 23 -- The Art Of Peace Foundation has announced
it will release a deluxe edition of their controversial album, Songs
For Tibet (Warner Bros.), in December that will include a three hour
DVD with teachings by the Dalai Lama.

The album entitled, "Songs for Tibet - The Art of Peace", was
initially released on August 5 as a download days before the 2008
Beijing Olympics as an expression of peace and support for Tibet and
the Dalai Lama. The album features 20 tracks from world's top artists
like Sting, Alanis Morissette, Rush, Imogen Heap, Garbage, Damien
Rice, Moby, Duncan Sheik and many more. Legendary producer Rupert
Hine (the Fixx, Stevie Nicks, Bob Geldof) oversaw the musical
direction of the project.

As of August 6, 2008, within one day of release, Songs for Tibet was
already the #1 Rock Album on iTunes in the United States, France,
Canada, Italy, and the Netherlands and was climbing the Rock charts
throughout the world.

After more than 40 Olympic Athletes in Beijing downloaded the album,
the Chinese authorities responded by blocking access to the album,
including cutting off some of the biggest online music retailers.
After a worldwide outcry, the album became available again in China.
