Hear Elvis Costello's "New Basement Tapes" track, with lyrics by Bob Dylan

A second track, " Married To My Hack", has been released from the forthcoming Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes project.

The album features lyrics that Dylan wrote while recording the original Basement Tapes in 1967 that have been put to music by Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Dawes' Taylor Goldsmith, Jim James, T Bone Burnett and Marcus Mumford.

The second song from these sessions, "Married To My Hack" is sung by Elvis Costello and accompanied by an animated video that overlays abstract cartoons and Dylan's original hand-written lyrics.
