Kweller, Leo, Stevens Go 'Rubber Soul' Searching

Published: 2005-08-02
Everyone knows they're one of the most influential rock bands that ever existed, and now all the Beatles offspring are showing their thanks for the band's Rubber Soul album. Everyone from Ted Leo to the Donnas have contributed to This Bird Has Flown - A 40th Anniversary Tribute to the Beatles' Rubber Soul.

The album is a song by song tribute to the 1965 record, which marked a turning point in the Beatles sound, from teen idols to experimental artistes. This Bird Has Flown even has the same track-listing as Rubber Soul, the only difference being the artists performing the songs.

Look for This Bird Has Flown to hit record stores across the continent on October 25th, through Razor & Tie. The 14 tracks of the tribute album look like this:

"Drive My Car" - The Donnas
"Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)" - The Fiery Furnaces
"You Won't See Me" - Dar Williams
"Nowhere Man" - Low
"Think For Yourself" - Yonder Mountain String Band
"The Word" - Mindy Smith
"Michelle" - Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals
"What Goes On" - Sufjan Stevens
"Girl" - Rhett Miller"
"I'm Looking Through You" - Ted Leo
"In My Life" - Ben Lee
"Wait" - Ben Kweller
