Morrissey, Mos Def, Rodrigo Y Gabriela Give Songs to Latino Census Cause!


Morrissey, Mos Def and Rodrigo Y Gabriela are among the artists to contribute songs to the album ‘Be Counted! Represent!,’ a release designed to encourage higher levels of participation by Latinos in the 2010 US Census.

Morrissey’s song is ‘When I Last Spoke To Carol (Toy Selectah Mix),’ while Mos Def’s offering is ‘No Hay Nada Mas,’ and Rodrigo Y Gabriela’s being ‘Hanuman’, The compilation is otherwise dominated by Latin artists, including Os Mutantes, Ozomatli, Pitbull and Aventura.

The idea is for members of America’s Latino community to make a pledge to fill in a census form, and in return they can download the 25-track album for free.
