In an attempt to introduce The Beatles to a younger audience, music executive Owen Husney and Community Music’s Community Project released Beatles Reimagined today. The album is a collection of Beatles songs performed by indie bands (see tracklist below).
Indie-folk collective Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros appear on the record with their own rendition of “I Saw Her Standing There”. Inspired by the spontaneous vibe of a show the band recently caught in Nashville, their version of the Beatles classic has a breezy Americana twang feel to it.
Listen to Edward Sharpe’s “I Saw Her Standing There” below:
