The New Basement Tapes to Make Live Debut On ‘The Tonight Show’
The New Basement Tapes -- a supergroup formed around producer T Bone Burnett's Bob Dylan project album, 'Lost On the River: The New Basement Tapes' -- will make their live debut with a series of performances on several TV shows: They'll play 'The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon' on Nov. 10, 'Ellen' on Nov. 14 and 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' on Nov. 19.
The band, which also includes Rhiannon Giddens of Carolina Chocolate Drops and Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, was assembled by Burnett to write and record music for recently discovered lyrics written by Dylan in 1967 for the original recording of 'The Basement Tapes.' The result is a 20-song album set to drop Nov. 10.
A documentary on the process called 'Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued' will also premiere on Showtime on Nov. 21. Directed by Sam Jones, the movie presents an intimate look at the discovery of the lyrics and the creation of the new compositions. Watch the trailer below:
