T Bone Burnett to Record Unfinished Dylan Tunes with Elvis Costello, Jim James, Marcus Mumford
T Bone Burnett has assembled a stellar band to record up to two dozen unreleased Bob Dylan songs from the singer-songwriter’s famed Basement Tapes era. The project, titled Lost On the River: The New Basement Tapes, has Dylan’s blessing and is set to feature Elvis Costello, Jim James, Marcus Mumford, Rhiannon Gidden and Taylor Goldsmith.
The newly recorded tunes will be compiled for an album and a Showtime television special, both of which are due out later this year. The project has also put together a new website, which can viewed here.
