The Purpose Hotel is a hotel in which everything benefits a worthy cause. The Internet fee will go to an initiative fighting human trafficking, the furniture creation will provide jobs for people in need, and each room will sponsor a child’s education, with a plaque on each door telling that child’s story. You can read more about the project here.
The soundtrack will have 20 tracks from different artists. It’s still unknown whether or not the soundtrack will include a new Paramore song, “Purpose Hotel is something that we want do locally with our community. But it isn’t promotion for new album!” Hayley tweeted when a fan asked about a new song.
You can pre-order the soundtrack at the project’s kickstarter page. Everyone who pledges $15 or more will receive digital version of the soundtrack, it’s expected to be released sometime next month.
Jeremy commented on the artists of the soundtrack saying “The artists we’ve chosen for The Purpose Hotel soundtrack are not only friends of ours, but their songs perfectly fit where we see the hotel going, with themes of justice, relationships, beauty and hope.”
