    Joanna Newsom obviously has a special talent for inspiring other artists. She was recently the subject of a tribute book entitled Visions of Joanna Newsom (before she cracked 30). Now she will also get a 22-track tribute album, which plays off the same Dylan reference and is entitled Versions of Joanna. Perhaps "tribute" is not quite the right word here given that her career is still in full swing... The important thing is, there will be covers of Joanna Newsom tunes from a varied cast of characters including Billy Bragg and M. Ward, and it'll be a varied, collective look at her work from a variety of unique perspectives.

    No full studio recordings of any of the tunes have surfaced yet, but M. Ward has been playing his version of "Sadie" at his shows. Grab the MP3 of his live version below. Bragg, meanwhile, filmed a take on "On A Good Day" for Voice Project. No official release date for the project has been set as of yet, but stay tuned. -peter menniti
