We now know what Bob Dylan has been teasing this week on social media with two posts that say, “Look Out” and “Watch It!” along with the hashtag #Dylan60.
On Friday at 8 a.m. ET he'll release his new version of “Subterranean Homesick Blues," which he re-recorded for producer T-Bone Burnett's new analog sound project, Iconic Originals.
Burnett says the new technology “possesses a depth, resonance and sonic fidelity that exceeds that of vinyl, CD, streaming or any other means of experiencing recorded music... Analog sound has more depth, more harmonic complexity, more resonance, better imaging. Analog has more feel, more character, more touch. Digital sound is frozen. Analog sound is alive.”
Dylan has launched a countdown for “Subterranean Homesick Blues (2022 Remake)” on his YouTube channel, and more details about Burnett's project and the other songs Dylan re-recorded will likely also be made available on Friday.
"Subterranean Homesick Blues" is the lead track on Dylan's first electric album, 1965's Bringing It All Back Home.
