Beautiful Carole KingSeven years after Marcia Hines’ Tapestry tribute, a bunch of Aussie artists are saluting Carole King.

Eight tracks come from Tapestry, two from King’s 1970 debut Writer, plus covers of a couple of ’60s gems King wrote with then-husband, Gerry Goffin. Vika and Linda Bull get on board The Loco-Motion (which became Kylie’s debut) and Human Nature tackle One Fine Day, which was first a hit for The Chiffons in 1963. Other standouts include Daryl Braithwaite’s take on Up On The Roof and Tina Arena’s So Far Away. And Esther Hannaford, the local star of the Carole King musical, performs the title track. Beautiful, indeed.

Beautiful: A Tribute to Carole King is out July 28 via Sony.
