Announcing The New Basement TapesAt 1:16 PM
Earlier this month Jim James, Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops) Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) and producer T Bone Burnett gathered in Capitol Studios to create music for two-dozen recently discovered lyrics written by Bob Dylan during 1967. Tremendous generosity was shown by Bob in sharing these lyrics.
The album, Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes, is set to be released later this year and will be accompanied by a documentary titled, Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued, directed by Sam Jones (the Wilco documentary, I Am Trying To Break Your Heart). The film will present an exclusive and intimate look at the making of Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes set against the important and historical cultural backdrop of Bob Dylan’s original Basement Tapes.
