Rave On Buddy Holly drops at the end of the month, but we already have our seventh track to listen to. It’s My Morning Jacket covering “True Love Ways,” and you can check it out below (via SPIN). Jim James brings his most country croon to this simple acoustic ballad as lush strings swirl around him.

The Black Keys cover “Dearest”
Modest Mouse covers “That’ll Be the Day”
Cee-Lo Green covers “You’re So Square (Baby I Don’t Care)”
Paul McCartney covers “It’s So Easy”
