Jim James Covers The Beatles’ ‘The Inner Light’

231

My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James shared video of the 1968 George Harrison-penned Beatles song “The Inner Light.” James covered the tune as part of The Material World Foundation’s “The Inner Light Challenge.”

“The Inner Light Challenge” is an interactive fundraising event that comes on the heels of a $500,000 donation from Harrison’s The Material World Foundation to MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, Save the Children and Doctors Without Borders. To raise an additional $100,000, The Material World Foundation will donate $1 for anyone who shares a version of “The Inner Light” with the hashtag #innerlight2020 with such luminaries as Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Dhani Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Joe Walsh, Jim James and many more getting behind the project. Head to The Material World Foundation’s website for more info.

For James’ version of “The Inner Light,” a song featuring classical Indian instruments, he accompanies himself on the banjo, an instrument that uses an open tuning and is conducive to eastern sounds. Watch the video, originally appearing on James’ Instagram, via the YouTube account mano1971music below:
