Musicians will create new songs from the submissions.
Metamorphoses will also include alternative rock band The National and pop singer Ellie Goulding.
Ben Lovett, of Mumford & Sons, will curate the project.
More participating artists will be announced at a later date and the album will be released in the autumn.
Global Citizen launched in 2012. It produces the free Global Citizen Festival in New York City.
Last year's festival included US first lady Michelle Obama, Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai and Beyonce.
