Jim James' Inspired Beach Boys Cover

Jim James announced his follow up to Tribute To today by releasing his cover of the Beach Boys "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times". The album, aptly named Tribute To 2, doesn't focus on one artist like he did with George Harrison as he takes on songs from Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, and more. He approached the Beach Boys by using Issac Hayes' version of Jimmy Webb's "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" for a groove. Listen to the song below to see where he went from there.
