Superstar DJ Tiesto has teamed up with the anti-AIDS charity (RED) for a compilation album that includes some of EDM's biggest names, including Calvin Harris, Avicii and Diplo. Out November 27th, Dance (RED), Save Lives will also feature Tiesto's recent collaboration with Bono on a remake of U2's "Pride."

"When I went to Africa in 2006, I was struck by the devastating effect of AIDS," said Tiesto in a statement. "Now the world has an incredible chance to make sure that babies are born HIV-free by 2015, and the dance community is going to make a lot of noise to help make this happen."

The album will be accompanied by a YouTube livestream of sets from Tiesto and other Dance (Red) artists during Melbourne's Stereosonic Festival, which will be staged during World AIDS Day weekend on December 1st and 2nd.

"What Tiesto and his friends in the dance music community are bringing to this fight is invaluable," said (RED) CEO Deborah Dugan. "They bring the kind of heat that is so desperately needed to keep this issue at the top of the agenda."

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
