Tribute: Jim James of My Morning Jacket covers George Harrison

Jim James of My Morning Jacket, who likes to go by the moniker Yim Yames for his solo recording, will release a collection of George Harrison covers on July 7th. James recorded the songs after the quiet Beatle passed in 2001 on an eight-track reel-to-reel in Shelbyville, Ky. Here's James's explanation:
He always seemed to be a beacon of good light unto the world, accomplishing the rare task of using his massive fortune and fame to promote peace - both within and around the World. I will always look up to and see him as a prime example of the healing power of music and how, in tune with it, all is possible.
Tribute To will include six songs from All Things Must Pass, including "Long Long Long," "Love You To," "My Sweet Lord," "Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)," "All Things Must Pass," and the beautiful "Behind That Locked Door" available below.
