UPDATE: Levi's Produces More Than Just Jeans with "Pioneer Sessions"

*Updated with even more covers!*

While I'm not the biggest fan of the jeans since they really do nothing to accentuate my applebottom, Levi's has done something pretty cool and remarkably free here. The Levi’s Pioneer Sessions 2010 Revival Recordings is comprised of a dozen tunes by pioneering artists spanning multiple genres. Further sweetening the deal, each song has been re-crafted by a pretty amazing roster of SIC faves, including the likes of She & Him, The Swell Season, The Shins, The Kills, and Dirty Projectors.

Each song is paired with exclusive photos, behind-the-scenes video, and additional content that celebrates the enduring importance of the song and the influence it has across generations.

Thus far they've released:

Nas - Hey Young World (Slick Rick Cover)
The Swell Season - Young Hearts Run Free (Candi Staton Cover)
She & Him - Fools Rush In (Rick Nelson Cover)
Dirty Projectors - I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine (Bob Dylan Cover)
Colbie Callat - Maria (Blondie Cover)
The Shins - Goodbye Girl (Squeeze Cover)
Passion Pit - Tonight, Tonight (Smashing Pumpkins Cover)
The Kills - Pale Blue Eyes (Velvet Underground Cover)
Jason Mraz - Spirit in the Sky (Norman Greenbaum Cover)
