Ed Covers Magical Mystery Tour for Netflix

Yesterday, Netflix announced a new animated series called Beat Bugs featuring more than 50 Beatles covers, including Magic Mystery Tour covered by Eddie Vedder and Drive My Car covered by Chris Cornell.  Look for the show to start in August.
Netflix is expanding its lineup with Beat Bugs: an animated series that follows the adventures of five friends. What's more, the show is inspired by songs from The Beatles, because, you know... bugs. As you might expect, the tunes are a big part of the show and there's some well-known artists who cover the tracks for the series.

The likes of Chris Cornell, Eddie Vedder, The Shins, Sia, Of Monsters and Men, P!nk and more all lend vocals to the classic songs. Even late-night host James Corden, known for his "Carpool Karaoke," makes an appearance.
