Today, Showtime announced the premiere date for the network's captivating new original documentary LOST SONGS: THE BASEMENT TAPES CONTINUED, which will premiere on Friday, November 21st at 9:00 p.m. The documentary, which is produced by Oscar winner T Bone Burnett and Sam Jones and directed by Jones, chronicles the recording of new music from long-lost lyrics penned by legendary songwriter Bob Dylan.
LOST SONGS: THE BASEMENT TAPES CONTINUED is an exclusive and intimate look at five of today's most acclaimed artists - Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Jim James (My Morning Jacket) and Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) -- as they create music for two-dozen recently discovered lyrics written by Bob Dylan. The Grammy-winning songwriter penned the songs in the summer of 1967 during a creative period.
A rare look inside the creative process of recording an album and the discovery of long-lost Dylan lyrics, LOST SONGS: THE BASEMENT TAPES CONTINUED captures this unprecedented musical collaboration between these musicians and 13-time Grammy winner Burnett, as they record these newly completed compositions in Hollywood's famed Capitol Studios. Jones, who directs the film, weaves these studio sessions into a broader narrative that incorporates the stories behind the original Basement Tapes, expounding on their cultural significance and charting their enduring influence.
The premiere coincides with the release of the Burnett-produced studio album on Electromagnetic Recordings/Harvest Records (Capitol Music Group).
