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.
