[ ATO / CD ]
Release Date: Friday 26 January 2018
After releasing the politically charged solo album 'Eternally Even' in 2016, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James returns with 'Tribute To 2', a collection of cover songs that reverberate with hope.
Unlike his 2009 mini album of songs by George Harrison and the Beatles, 'Tribute To', which was recorded on an eight-track, reel-to- reel tape recorder in the days following Harrison's passing, the 11 songs of 'Tribute To 2' were recorded over a period of years, in different places, with different gear and varied instrumentation. James explains, "These are some of my favourite covers - songs I recorded trying to bring myself peace during a rough time or trying to make myself laugh or just have fun. I hope others can relate and enjoy the journey during these tough times and hopefully in times of peace and love as well!"
