Dozens of top stars have donated songs to an album aimed at raising funds for typhoon disaster relief in the Philippines.

Tunes by The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Beyonce, U2 and Bruno Mars are among the 39 donated to Songs for the Philippines, available for purchase Monday at iTunes and for streaming on iTunes Radio.

The artists, record companies and music publishers have agreed to donate the proceeds to the Philippines Red Cross.

Thousands were killed, injured and displaced by Typhoon Haiyan earlier this month and officials have struggled to keep up with humanitarian aid demands.

The compilation album has a little of everything, from the disturbing images of a live version of Eminem's Stan to the calming effect of The Beatles' Let It Be.
