Sounds GOOD highlights new music that can be purchased to support worthy causes.

Hans Zimmer, the legendary composer behind the music of The Dark Knight Rises, has released a new charity recording to benefit the victims of the Aurora shooting tragedy. Simply titled "Aurora," the track was announced on Zimmer's Facebook page late last week:

"Aurora" is dedicated to those who lost their lives and were affected by the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. I recorded this song in London in the days following the tragedy as a heartfelt tribute to the victims and their families.


The track is available on iTunes for $1.29. Listeners in the United States can also get the track on MoonToast by making a donation—tiers range from $0.10 to $2500. All proceeds will be donated to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund.
