In aid of Amnesty International

A new Bob Dylan tribute album is in the works, with all funds going towards Amnesty International.

Now in his 70s, Bob Dylan's work retains a rare potency. Rock's poet laureate, the songwriter must surely rank as one of the most covered artists of all time, with his output being re-worked around the globe.

Now a massive box set aims to bring together a series of cover versions. 'Chimes Of Freedom' contains 75 tracks, with some 80 musicians helping to bring the box set together.

The tracks move throughout the songwriter's career, including all facets of Bob Dylan's output. The full cast list is so lengthy it would be counter productive to name each and every track, but suffice to say that ClashMusic is looking forward to hearing what Joan Baez, Jackson Browne, Cage The Elephant, Queens Of The Stone Age, Patti Smith, Raphael Saadiq, Bettye Lavette and more come up with.

Set to be released on January 30th, 'Chimes Of Freedom' is in aid of Amnesty International. “Bob Dylan’s music endures because he so brilliantly captures our heartbreak, our joy, our frailty, our confusion, our courage and our struggles,” said Karen Scott, Amnesty International’s Manager of Music Relations.

“His words convey a depth of meaning that few artists can equal, inspiring us and always moving ahead of our expectations. We at Amnesty International are deeply grateful to this legendary musician and to all of the artists who have contributed to this project.”
