Costello and Mumford bring Dylan lyrics to life


David Churchill

Elvis Costello today spoke of the honour of bringing lost lyrics by Bob Dylan to life nearly 50 years after they were written.

Costello has worked with artists including Mumford & Sons frontman Marcus Mumford to put music to words Dylan wrote in 1967 and recently found in an old box file.

Dylan gave them to producer T-Bone Burnett and he recruited Rhiannon Giddens from Carolina Chocolate Drops, Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes and Jim James from My Morning Jacket to work with Costello and Mumford. The result, Lost On The River, has been billed as a 20-song follow-up to Dylan's legendary Basement Tapes album.

Launching the project at Metropolis Studios in Chiswick, Costello said there had been a number of traps to avoid: "One is to go back in time, the other is to be intimidated and the third is to think that you are Bob and The Band because we're not. We're us, playing today with our own histories and our own preferences."

Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes will be released later this year along with a Showtime documentary.
