The Secret Sisters have completed an unfinished Bob Dylan song from the 1980s.

The track, called “Dirty Lie“, appears on their new album, Put Your Needle Down, which was produced by T Bone Burnett.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Laura Rogers from The Secret Sisters said, “We were in the middle of our recording session with T Bone and he said to us, ‘Bob sent over some songs for you guys to listen to and choose one to finish.’ It was the weirdest thing ever to even be considered to finish it in a way that even remotely measures up to what he is known for. So we looked at four or five demos he’d sent, and [‘Dirty Lie’] really spoke to us.”

Dylan’s “Dirty Lie” dates from the mid-Eighties and exists in a bootleg rehearsal recording from the Arena di Verona on May 27, 1984.

Put Your Needle Down also includes a cover of PJ Harvey‘s “The Pocket Knife”.

It will be released by Decca/Republic on May 26.
