The short version of the creation of Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes is this: Bob Dylan wrote over a hundred songs during the original Basement Tapes sessions in 1967. Lyrics from those sessions were recently discovered and a collaborative project ensued, featuring Elvis Costello, Jim James, Marcus Mumford, Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith and Carolina Chocolate Drop’s Rhiannon Giddens. T. Bone Burnett produced. The group recorded twenty songs over a two-week period and those will be released in standard and deluxe editions on November 11 via Electromagnetic Recordings/Harvest Records. The album will be accompanied by a Showtime documentary called Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued that will air November 21. You can preorder here
