Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, Roger Daltrey for Paul McCartney tribute album

Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson and Roger Daltrey are among the artists contributing to a Paul McCartney tribute album.

The Art Of McCartney features 32 artists who have recorded their covers with McCartney’s own backing musicians.

The line-up includes Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, Billy Joel, Steve Miller Band, Jeff Lynne, Willie Nelson, Barry Gibb, Roger Daltrey, Jamie Cullum and Corinne Bailey Rae.

Boxset and collectors' editions of the album will be released in the summer, with the standard album version coming out later in the year.

It has yet to be confirmed which specific song Dylan has covered, although fansite Isis reports sources claim it is "Things We Said Today" from A Hard Day's Night.
