Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued follows five current artists as they put music to words penned by the rock legend during the Summer of Love. Showtime‘s documentary puts Oscar winner T Bone Burnett together with Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons), Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes) and Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops) to record an album of the songs a 26-year-old Bob Dylan originally wrote in 1967 for the record that became The Basement Tapes. Sam Jones (I Am Trying To Break Your Heart) directs docu, which offers a deep look inside the creative process of recording the album, weaving the studio sessions together with stories about The Basement Tapes, Dylan’s landmark collaboration with The Band that was released in 1975. Burnett played guitar on the Rolling Thunder Revue tour that followed the album. Showtime will air Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued later this year, timed to the release of the album. Jones, Burnett and Carol Cohen are producing the film.
