Last Friday (July 9th) My Morning Jacket’s Jim James shared a beautiful rendition of Steve Miller Band’s ballad “Seasons.”
The cover is a part of Secretly Canadian’s anniversary series SC25 Editions, that initially launched in April. The proceeds from music sales and more will go to New Hope for Families, a non-profit that aids homeless families in Bloomington, Indiana.
In a statement James revealed: “[Secretly Canadian co-founder] Chris Swanson and I started out in the music world around the same time and I have always appreciated his friendship and support.”
Listen to Jim James cover “Seasons” below.
Additionally, the latest installment of SC25 Editions also includes Madison McFerrin’s enchanting version of Here We Go Magic’s “Over the Ocean.”
In a statement, McFerrin shared:
“When covering ‘Over the Ocean’, I wanted to capture the haunting ease of ocean waves. I’m a water sign and feel very much at ease in the ocean. I hope everyone hears the closeness of that comfort, while simultaneously feeling the expansiveness of the deep blue. I’m incredibly grateful to contribute to such a wonderful cause through this song.”

So far, the series has also seen covers from Beach Fossils, Stella Donnelly, Porridge Radio, NNAMDÏ, and more.
