Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and She & Him are among the many artists featured on the third installment of the Sweet Relief series of benefit albums.  The Sweet Relief III: Pennies from Heaven compilation, which will be released this Tuesday, showcases various singer/songwriters performing cover tunes that offer themes of support and assistance.

Ament plays bass on Joseph Arthur 's version of "If I Needed You," by folk-country great Townes Van Zandt , while She & Him contributes a rendition of “King of the Road” by country singer Roger Miller . Other musicians featured on the album include Jackson Browne , k.d. lang , Ben Harper , Ron Sexsmith and Victoria Williams .

Williams, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, was the beneficiary of the first Sweet Relief compilation.  Sales of the albums now raise funds for the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund , which donates money to artists in need of financial assistance because of illness or other issues.
