Bob Dylan has set November 11th for the release date of Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes on CD, Deluxe CD and double LP pressed on 180-gram vinyl.
In 1967, during the creation of the original Basement Tapes, Dylan left a treasure-trove of long-lost handwritten lyrics unrecorded and now the tracks have been brought to life nearly 50 years later by artists such as Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Jim James (My Morning Jacket), and Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) who have come together to create and record new music to these lyrics.
The album is produced by T Bone Burnett. “What transpired during those two weeks was amazing for all of us,” Burnett explains. “There was a deep well of generosity and support in the studio at all times, which reflected the tremendous trust and generosity shown by Bob in sharing these lyrics with us in the first place.”
