The New Basement Tapes Collaborators To Perform Live On TV In November

The New Basement Tapes

The New Basement Tapes collaborators – Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Jim James (My Morning Jacket) and Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) – will make their first live performances via three national television appearances in November. They will perform on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on November 10, Ellen on November 14 and Jimmy Kimmel Live on November 19.

As I previously posted ‘Lost On the River: The New Basement Tapes’ is a T Bone Burnett-produced venture built sround ” recently discovered lyrics handwritten by Bob Dylan in 1967 during the period that generated the recording of his original Basement Tapes. ”

Dylan entrusted the lyrics to Burnett, who gathered the artists in March 2014 at Capitol Studios in Hollywood to write and create music together for the long-lost lyrics, swapping instrumental and vocal roles throughout the marathon sessions. The result was dozens of new songs and recordings, 20 of which are included and will be released by Electromagnetic Recordings/Harvest Records on November 10.

This comes on the heels of original Bob Dylan and The Band original Basement Tapes recordings getting the expanded edition treatment and being released a week earlier.

An original documentary ‘Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued’ will premiere on SHOWTIME, Friday, November 21st at 9 P.M. ET/PT. Directed by Sam Jones, the documentary will present an exclusive and intimate look at the making of Lost On The River.
