Jim James Shares Cover Of Abbey Lincoln's The World Is Falling Down

Monday, 20 November 2017 Written by Laura Johnson

Jim James has shared his cover of Abbey Lincoln's track The World Is Falling Down.

It will feature on his new covers LP, 'Tribute To 2', which will arrive on December 8 through ATO Records, who will also reissue 2009's 'Tribute To', James' George Harrison and Beatles covers EP, on the same day.

Speaking about Lincoln's song, the My Morning Jacket frontman said:

"Even though she released this song in 1991 it felt so relevant to right now. I think so many of us feel the world is falling apart right now - that the powers that be are trying to divide us and rip us apart … when I heard that song it just resonated deeply because there is such pain there but I feel she also is offering hope and realization that we need each other’s help in times of crisis.”
