My Morning Jacket's James Plots EP of George Harrison Covers

June 24, 2009 5:16 PM ET

My Morning Jacket's Jim James is a busy man lately: In addition to his Monsters of Folk indie supergroup, the MMJ frontman, performing under the mysterious alias Yim Yames, will release an EP of George Harrison covers titled Tribute To on August 4th. Recorded just days after Harrison's death in 2001, the raw collection groups four songs off Harrison's legendary solo album All Things Must Pass with a pair of Harrison's most beloved Beatles songs. James called Harrison's music "a prime example of the healing power of music," a point that Tribute To proves. The EP's track list:

Tribute To:

1. "Long Long Long"
2. "Behind That Locked Door"
3. "Love You To"
4. "My Sweet Lord"
5. "Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)"
6. "All Things Must Pass"

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
