My Morning Jacket frontman records George Harrison tribute EP

Jim James, lead singer of My Morning Jacket, will release a six-song tribute to George Aug. 4.

Out under the name Yim Yames (sneaky!), the album is titled Tribute To and features James' renditions of:

"Long, Long, Long"
"Behind That Locked Door"
"Love You To"
"My Sweet Lord"
"Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)"
"All Things Must Pass"

According to Billboard:

The set is said to evoke a "raw, minimalist feel" with James utilizing just his voice and an acoustic guitar. James refers to Harrison as "a prime example of the healing power of music" in the liner notes.
