Now, a new compilation has been assembled to benefit Manning as she leaves prison and re-enters the free world. “Hugs For Chelsea” features songs from Thurston Moore, Against Me!, Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello, Downtown Boys, Priests, and more,

The compilation is set to feature unreleased music by Ted Leo and Screaming Females as well.
