Tribute To is an EP by My Morning Jacket lead singer Jim James (under the name Yim Yames), consisting entirely of George Harrison (and Beatles) covers.[10] The EP was released as a digital download via his website, on July 7, 2009. The album was released as a CD on August 4, 2009.[11] James recorded the album in December 2001 on a relative's eight-track reel-to-reel tape recorder, just days after Harrison's passing.[10] Of the recording, James told Billboard magazine that "I felt like I was in the weirdest head space when I did that EP … I felt really confused a lot of the time. I wanted to just do it and let it come out even if I messed stuff up. It's definitely not the tightest or most professional recording you're ever going to hear in your life but I like that. I think it lends it a more childish atmosphere."[10]

The recordings were described as "delicate and suitably reverential" by The Skinny.[8]

James announced that a portion of the proceeds would be donated to the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary.[10]
