The long and winding road of a Minnesota-flavored project featuring the music of The Beatles has come to an end, The Associated Press reported.

"Minnesota Beatle Project Vol. 5" features various Minnesota artists covering songs from the Fab Four. Among the album's 13 tracks are "Taxman" by The Suburbs and "Please Please Me" by the Denfeld High School Jazz Band.

The Current said the first "Minnesota Beatle Project" album came out in 2009, featuring covers by the likes of The Suicide Commandos and Dave Simonett.

Also featured on the first album is a rendition of "Across the Universe" by Nicholas Mrozinski, who would go on to perform under the name Nicholas David on NBC's "The Voice."

Released last week by Minnesota nonprofit organization Vega Productions, 100 percent of the proceeds from "Vol. 5" will go to support music education across the state.

KSTP said a release party was scheduled for Sunday at First Avenue in Minneapolis with performances by The Suburbs and other artists.

The album is for sale at Target, various independent record stores, and online.
