The official web site of Alison Krauss & Union Station is offering a free download of the song, Jubilee, which was featured in the award-winning film documentary, Paper Clips. The free track will only be available from the site today, June 26, until midnight (CDT).
Find the download here.
Paper Clips is the story of how the children in a rural Smoky Mountain community in Tennessee came to appreciate the wider world in which they live through a Holocaust Memorial project envisioned by Linda Hooper, their middle school principal. The children vowed to collect 11 million paper clips, one for each victim of the Nazi regime’s inhumanity, and the film recounts their quest to collect the clips, and what they learned about the horrors of that time.
The Krauss track, Jubilee, has not been previously available on any recording, or download service. After today’s free download period expires, it will go on sale in Apple’s iTunes Music Store.
