Preview Amnesty’s Mammoth 75-Song Bob Dylan Tribute Chimes Of Freedom

By Tom Breihan / December 12, 2011 - 5:14 pm

Last month, we reported on the existence of Chimes Of Freedom, Amnesty International’s massive and mind-boggling new Bob Dylan tribute compilation. The album includes four CDs and 75 covers, and its list of contributors is wide enough to include the Kronos Quartet, Pete Seeger, and Miley Cyrus. Versatility!

Right now, you can stream clips from the entire monstrous thing at Amnesty’s Facebook page; all you have to do is click “like.” And because we knew you were curious, click the jump to hear Ke$ha’s impressively raspy take on “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” — that’s if you can get over the dissonance of Ke$ha singing a Bob Dylan song. Did she murder it in the good way or the bad way? You be the judge!

Chimes Of Freedom is out 1/24 through Fontana Distribution. All proceeds benefit Amnesty International.
