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"

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
