As we reported in February, the late, great singer-songwriter Jason Molina will be honored with a tribute album on April 22nd. Farewell Transmission: The Music of Jason Molina is now available to stream above, courtesy of NPR.

The album is made up of covers by a variety of artists that count Molina or his Songs: Ohia project as a major influence, including My Morning Jacket, Murder By Death, Water Liars and even Molina's old band, Magnolia Electric Co., who now perform under the name Memorial Electric Co. With some 25+ individual artists involved in this tribute album, these are Molina's songs as you've never heard them, molded into a variety of different styles by some immensely talented artists.

Proceeds from the album will be split between Molina's family and a charity called Musicares, which "provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need." You can preorder Farewell Transmission: The Music of Jason Molina on iTunes, and view the tracklist below.
