Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros have recorded an exuberant country version of The Beatles' classic "I Saw Her Standing There." The tune is slated for release on Community Music's new tribute album entitled Beatles Reimagined, featuring 9 other indie bands.
Frontman Alex Ebert's rendition of the track was heavily influenced by barebones Nashville players he was watching at the time. The singer tells Rolling Stone:
"Later we were in the studio recording an album . . . I thought 'I Saw Her Standing There' would be a fun song to do. We learned the song by listening to it a couple times. . . . We decided to do it in that same un-trying way, same as that night in Nashville, just everybody playing at once straight down the line, nothing special – and that's part of why it was so fun to do."
