The latest installment of Secretly Canadian’s SC25 Editions singles has arrived. This one includes covers by Jim James and Madison McFerrin. Listen to James’ version of “Seasons” by Steve Miller Band, and McFerrin’s take on “Over the Ocean” by Here We Go Magic, below.

“[Secretly Canadian co-founder] Chris Swanson and I started out in the music world around the same time and I have always appreciated his friendship and support,” Jim James said in a statement.

Of her cover, Madison McFerrin said:

When covering “Over the Ocean,” I wanted to capture the haunting ease of ocean waves. I’m a water sign and feel very much at ease in the ocean. I hope everyone hears the closeness of that comfort, while simultaneously feeling the expansiveness of the deep blue. I’m incredibly grateful to contribute to such a wonderful cause through this song.

Secretly Canadian launched its anniversary single series in April. Proceeds from sales of music and more will go to the nonprofit New Hope for Families, with a goal of raising $250,000. So far, the label has issued covers by Stella Donnelly, Porridge Radio, NNAMDÏ, Beach Fossils, and more. 

Additionally, Secretly Canadian has announced a new series titled Secretly Frequencies—a bi-weekly playlist curated by a rotating crew of Secretly employees, artists, and collaborators. Check out the first edition, put together by co-founder Ben Swanson.
