A movement that aspires to inspire the world through music, Playing For Change journeyed the globe, unifying varied musicians, for a unique rendition of Keith Richards' Words of Wonder, off 1992's Main Offender, which gelled into an unparalleled cover of Bob Marley's Get Up, Stand Up.

Keith Richards in collaboration with Roberto Luti, Titi Tsira, Keb’ Mo’, Mermans Mosengo, Aztec Indians, Natalie Pa’apa’a of Blue King Brown, and Jamaican singer Sherita Lewis along with and a number of worldwide musicians delivers an impeccable musical treat.

The song will appear on Playing for Change 3: Songs Around the World, a new CD and DVD set of artists including Los Lobos and Toots and the Maytal's Toots Hibbert collaborating with artists like Argentinian rocker Andres Calamaro and Taj Mahal, respectively. Other artists on the compilation include Sara Bareilles and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The set will come out on June 17th.
