New Release: OK Go/Bonerama, "You're Not Alone" EP

From PlugInMusic.com ('cause I'm too lazy to do anything but cut and paste):

OK Go spent the second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in a studio in the Upper 9th Ward of New Orleans collaborating with Bonerama. With the help of producer Mark Nevers, they put together an EP that adds a brash, unmistakably New Orleans swagger to the OK Go’s infectious rock. The collection, called You’re Not Alone, will benefit New Orleans R&B legend Al "Carnival Time" Johnson — who joins in on a cover of Bob Dylan's "I Shall Be Released" — as well as Sweet Home New Orleans, an organization dedicated to helping the thousands of local musicians scattered by the storm.

You Are Not Alone will also feature a cover of Bowie's "Rock 'N Roll Suicide." It's set to drop on 5 February.

OK Go and Bonerama are playing 11 January at Tipitina's in New Orleans in a benefit concert for Al “Carnival Time” Johnson & Sweet Home New Orleans.

They'll be playing another benefit show on 2 February at the 9:30 Club in DC. If you're not going to be getting down at the Middle East that day, you should at least go to this instead.
