My Morning Jacket Dedicates George Harrison Tribute To Woodstock FAS!
Music AND animal sanctuary lovin’? Where do I sign up??!!
Ecorazzi recently got word that Jim James, lead singer of the band “My Morning Jacket,” will donate a portion of the proceeds from his upcoming limited edition EP toWoodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary! The EP is a collection of George Harrison songs covered by Jim James (under the alias “Yim Yames”) that was recorded back in 2001.
A proud vegetarian, Jim wanted to honor both Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary and Harrison. About the decision, James said:
“I know this is something that George [Harrison] really believed in. George was all about treating all creatures equally and eating responsibly.”
You can download a free preview song on his website and a full digital download and the CD will come later in July.
