Footage from the Showtime documentary Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued, which captures the recording of the New Basement Tapes album, has surfaced.
In the clip, Elvis Costello plays band leader to the New Basement Tapes, which includes Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Rhiannon Giddens of Carolina Chocolate Drops and Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, along with producer T Bone Burnett, while they record a rollocking take on the track, “Six Months in Kansas City (Liberty Street).”
This project sees the supergroup taking on Bob Dylan’s lyrics from the Basement Tapes, setting them to fresh music. The documentary, set to accompany the album’s release, will give a behind the scenes look into the recording process.
