There’s a new entry to Secretly Canadian‘s SC25 singles series out today: My Morning Jacket‘s Jim James is covering “Seasons” by Steve Miller Band, and Madison McFerrin has reimagined Here We Go Magic’s “Over The Ocean.”
As a reminder, the Bloomington, Indiana-based indie label is currently doing a year-long celebration around its 25th anniversary. Part of that venture includes SC25 rereleases, or, a collection of 12 albums re-issued in limited editions. There’s also the SC25 Singles series, which features “25 new, rare and unreleased songs, covers and collaborations from artists both within and outside the Secretly Canadian family.” Profits will help fight homelessness in Bloomington, with Secretly Canadian aiming to raise a quarter of a million dollars for area organization New Hope For Families.
