A track, “Nothing To It“, 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 first song from these sessions, “Nothing To It” is accompanied by an animated video that overlays abstract cartoons and Dylan’s original hand-written lyrics.
Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes is released on November 11 across a variety of different formats.
A digital edition is available for preorder on iTunes and Amazon now.
The album will be released as deluxe and standard CD editions, as well as a 180-gram virgin-vinyl two-disc set.
A limited-edition box set of the album includes the deluxe CD, the 180-gram virgin-vinyl two-disc set, six photographic portraits of the artists, five prints of the newly discovered Bob Dylan handwritten lyrics, an album cover lithograph and the deluxe digital album.
