Jim James, the bearded wonder at the front of My Morning Jacket, will release an EP of George Harrison covers on August 4 under the you-totally-won't-know-it's-him nom de rock Yim Yames. Harrison, you'll recall, is the Beatle not named John, Paul, or Ringo. From the press release: "A few days after George Harrison passed away in 2001, Yim Yames was moved to record this six-song EP of Harrison covers, paying tribute to a man that he never met, but with whom he felt a special connection. The tracks have a serene quality that mourn the loss of a legendary spirit while celebrating his enduring influence."
