08 July 2015, 09:14 | Written by Laurence Day

Mark Kozelek has announced a new record of spoken word poems to raise money for charities in Argentina.

Kozelek hasn't written the poems himself though, with the poetry arriving from "street kids in Argentina" via translators. It's performed in both English and Spanish, with the latter being read by Nicolás Pauls.

A blurb announcing the release on Kozelek's website reads:

"Dreams Of Childhood is a collection of 11 poems written by street kids in Argentina, translated by Argentine actor/musician Nicolás Pauls, Federico Novik, Pablo Cubarle and Catalina Morano. Performed in English by Mark Kozelek and in Spanish by Nicolás Pauls. Executive producer Nicolás Pauls. All proceeds will go to La Casa de la Cultura de la Calle (The Streets House of Culture) which is a nonprofit civil organization that seeks the social inclusion of kids with no homes by giving them art, music, theatre and photography classes."

Sun Kil Moon's latest record Universal Themes is out now. Dreams Of Childhood is slated for release via Caldo Verde on 27 October.
