Levi's not just covering asses anymore, now they've got cover songs by Nas, The Swell Season

I'm a little late here, but you've still got a couple days to get free songs by Nas and The Swell Season as part of a new project started by Levi (the jeans company).

Beginning this week, Levis is giving away two free songs each week. They're all covers and there's a pretty good lineup for this thing.

This week, you get Nas doing Rick James' "Hey Young World" and The Swell Season doing "Young Hearts Run Free" a 70s disco song by Candi Staton.

In the coming weeks, you'll see 
She & Him - "Fools Rush In" by Rick Nelson
The Dirty Projectors - "I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine" by Bob Dylan
Colbie Caillat - "Maria" by Blondie
The Shins - "Goodbye Girl" by Squeeze
Raphael Saadiq - "It's A Shame" by The Spinners
Bomba Estereo - "Pump Up the Jam" by Technotronic
Jason Mraz - "Spirit in the Sky" by Norman Greenbaum
John Legend and the Roots - "Our Generation" by Ernie Hines

among others. 

this week's downloads are available through May 27 (that's Thursday for you calender-ically challenged people)
