The New Basement Tapes (Feat. Elvis Costello, Jim James, Marcus Mumford) – “Married To My Hack”

By Tom Breihan / September 2, 2014

In 1967, Bob Dylan and the Band got together to work on a whole pile of songs, many of which eventually came out as The Basement Tapes. But many of those songs were left unfinished, and now producer T Bone Burnett has gotten together with an all-star cast to finish some of those songs, setting Dylan’s old lyrics to music. The project features people like Elvis Costello, My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James, and Mumford & Sons’ Marcus Mumford. We’ve already posted the lyric video for “Nothing To It,” and now they’ve shared another one, for a messy two-minute ramble called “Married To My Hack.” Come on. You know you want to hear Costello’s Bob Dylan impression. It’s below.

Yikes. Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes is out 11/11 on Electromagnetic Recordings/Harvest Records.
