Bob Dylan season is upon us. A week after the legendary artist’s The Basement Tapes Complete set went up for streaming, the tribute companion album, Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes, is available for streaming at iTunes.
The project brings together My Morning Jacket‘s Jim James, Elvis Costello, Mumford and Sons‘ Marcus Mumford, Dawes‘ Taylor Goldsmith, Carolina Chocolate Drops‘ Rhiannon Giddens and producer T Bone Burnett, who together created music for two dozen lyrics that had previously been unreleased.
The lyrics were written by Dylan in 1967 after his motorcycle accident when he retreated to Big Pink and worked non-stop on music with five musicians known then as the Hawks, who later became the Band.
The making of the tribute album will be documented in a Showtime documentary titled Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued, which is set to debut Nov. 21.
Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes is out Nov. 11 on Electromagnetic Recordings/ Harvest Records. Meanwhile, Dylan’s The Basement Tapes Complete: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11 is out now.
