In the aftermath of a terrorist attack that left 89 dead at their Nov. 13 concert in Paris, Eagles of Death Metal asked artists to cover their song "I Love You All the Time" as a charity effort for families of the victims. Today the band has shared versions from Florence + the MachineMy Morning JacketJimmy Eat WorldKings of LeonImagine Dragons, Savages and a half dozen more.

Visit Eagles of Death Metal's site for information about the Play It Forward campaign, with links to purchase and stream all the covers. "For every cover sold, we pledge to donate 100% of the publishing income to The Sweet Stuff Foundation," the site reads. Sweet Stuff is drummer/co-founder/Queens of the Stone Age dude Josh Homme's charity, one dedicated to helping musicians struggling with disability and illness. (A separate fundraising campaign is also running there.) 

There's lots more about the Play It Forward campaign at the site, as well as the option to submit your own cover. A simple Spotify search for "I Love You All the Time Play it Forward" will also hand you the whole batch of covers released thus far. Spin a couple now:

Pearl Jam also contributed a cover of "Want You So Hard" along with drummer Matt Cameron's take on "I Love You All the Time." Those are available here.

This week, Eagles of Death Metal announced rescheduled dates for the European tour they cut short following the events of Nov. 13.
