MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The track list for one of the most anticipated albums of the year, in Minnesota at least, was announced Thursday.

Cities 97 released the track listing for their Cities 97 Sampler volume 26.

The sampler will go on sale at 8 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 20 at Target Stores across the metro. Only 35,000 copies will be available and cost $25.97.

The 2014 sampler features 19 tracks that were recorded in Cities 97’s Studio C or in concert.

If this year’s sampler sells out, nearly $910,000 will be raised. This will put the total amount raised for charities by Cities 97 samplers at over $11 million.

Charities and nonprofits that have benefited from these proceeds include Animal Humane Society, East Side Learning Center, Second Harvest Heartland, Minnesota Aids Project, SAVE – Suicide Awareness, YMCA, Tubman Family Alliance and Spare Key.

In addition to the track listing, the date and location of the Cities 97 Sampler vol. 26 release party was announced.

The party will be held Tuesday, Nov. 18 at the Myth in St. Paul, Minn. Doors open at 6 p.m. and music will begin at 7 p.m.
