Produced by T Bone Burnett, Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes was written and performed in creative collaboration by Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens, Taylor Goldsmith, Jim James and Marcus Mumford. The artists and Burnett gathered in Capitol Studios in March to write and create music for a treasure trove of recently discovered lyrics handwritten by Bob Dylan in 1967 during the period that generated the recording of the legendary Basement Tapes.
That’s quite the backstory and cast of characters, huh? Marcus Mumford’s delicately beautiful interpretation of ‘When I Get My Hands On You’ is the first taste of what’s to come, and judging by it we all might be in for quite the treat. Enjoy.
