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"

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
