The New Basement Tapes Debuts "When I Get My Hands On You"


Another song from the forthcoming collaborative album Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes has been released. The new track—“When I Get My Hands On You”—finds Marcus Mumford taking up lead vocals. The debut of “When I Get My Hands On You” follows the release of two other tracks from the compilation, the Jim James-fronted “Nothing To It” and the Elvis Costello-fronted “Married To My Hack.”

As previously reported, T-Bone Burnett recently teamed up with Mumford, James, Costello, Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith and Carolina Chocolate Drops’ Rhiannon Giddens to record The New Basement Tapes. The project saw the artists put their spin on a treasure trove of recently discovered lyrics that were handwritten by Bob Dylan during his famed 1967 Basement Tapes sessions. The artists swapped instrumental and vocal roles over the course of a two-week session at Hollywood’s Capitol Studios, which saw the team write music for dozens of the Dylan-penned tunes.

The New Basement Tapes will bebe accompanied by a showtime documentary that is set to premiere on November 21. The album itself will be released on November 11.
