For the past few months, Levi’s has sponsored a series of sessions that find modern artists doing covers of bands who influenced their sound. These tracks are available as free downloads each month on their website. The bands range from She & Him doing Rick Nelson’s “Fools Rush In”, to the Shins doing Squeeze’s “Good Bye Girl.” New artists are being added almost every week, with the latest being Ryan Bingham doing James Roosevelt’s “That’s How Strong My Love Is.” Each track page offers fans a bit of info on the artist and their take on the song they covered. Other artists include NAS, the Swell Season, Dirty Projectors, Colbie Caillat, Bomba Estereo, Jason Mraz, Raphael Saadiq, Passion Pit, John Legend and the Roots, and the Kills.
