 "The Beatles are the band I think of the most when I'm considering if the music I'm making is good enough," Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros has declared. And he's putting his love of the Fab Four to tape, contributing a cover of "I Saw Her Standing There" to an upcoming covers album.

Beatles Reimagined is set to be released on October 1st via Community Music's "Community Projects" label, which benefits charities for youth and music. (In this case, all proceeds will go to the Rock n' Roll Camp for Girls Los Angeles.)
