Lost On The River, Coming Soon

Coming in November is this album of twenty tracks with previously-unreleased Bob Dylan lyrics from 1967, the time of the original Basement Tapes. Here is an explanatory quote from the album website:
Produced by T Bone Burnett, Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes was written and performed in creative collaboration by Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens, Taylor Goldsmith, Jim James and Marcus Mumford. The artists and Burnett gathered in Capitol Studios in March to write and create music for a treasure trove of recently discovered lyrics handwritten by Bob Dylan in 1967 during the period that generated the recording of the legendary Basement Tapes.
And here is a video of one of the tracks, "Nothing To It", displaying Dylan's actual handwritten lyrics.
