Rolling Stone Debuts “I Saw Her Standing There” From Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros Today
Featuring contributions from Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros along with nine emerging U.S. indie artists across diverse genres, BEATLES REIMAGINED commemorates the 50th anniversary of the recording and release of Beatles songs from 1963-4, including "From Me To You," "She Loves You" and "I Saw Her Standing There," which cemented the band's status as rock and roll royalty. Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros have debuted the lead single "I Saw Her Standing There" today, (September 30) on RollingStone.com. Listen to the song which Rolling Stone hails a "rollicking country version" and read the story behind the band's inspiration to re-imagine the song in a unique way.
Due out October 1, the BEATLES REIMAGINED album will be released on Community Projects and 100% of the label's net album sales will be donated to the Rock n' Roll Camp for Girls Los Angeles (www.rockcampforgirlsla.org). BEATLES REIMAGINED honors the greatest modern songwriters of all time while infusing their music with a distinctly 21st century twist. These new interpretations are not simply covers but have hotly-tipped U.S. indie artists re-envisioning the songs on their own from alternative folk (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros), acoustic folk (The Well Pennies), indie-rock (Mobley), indie-pop (Jhameel), new-rock (Badwolf), new-wave (Adventure Galley) and electro-dance-pop (Night Panther) through downtempo/lo fi (Feverbody), old school soul (Doom & Gloom) and retro-pop (Leftover Cuties). The Beatles themselves were influenced by American artists such as Chuck Berry, Little Richard and Elvis Presley, and BEATLES REIMAGINED returns their music to the heartland that inspired them: the United States.
