Lost on the River is due out Nov. 11. It includes 15 songs written by Dylan in what’s estimated to be 1967 and recorded in two weeks by the supergroup.
On Minimation, we comb through the archives of legendary New York radio station WNEW-FM and animate interviews with legendary rock artists. This installment is taken from a 1985 interview with Bob Dylan, where he discusses his feelings about the then-budding art form of music videos. This minimation was created for Radio.com by Elliot Lobell.

An early draft of Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” was sold on Tuesday (June 24) for $2 million in New York.
Dylan gives the tune a decidedly Americana feel, trading the original’s swelling string arrangement with pedal steel guitars, although he stays true to Sinatra’s arrangement.
“I didn’t want to copy an arrangement he had done, or even the people who had covered his music had done,” Daniels told Radio.com. Instead, on his new album, he aimed for “a totally fresh approach to the Dylan tunes.”

It was the mid-1960s, and Kristofferson was “a janitor at Columbia Recording Studios in Nashville at the time,” explained. “I didn’t talk to anybody in there, because songwriters weren’t allowed to be in the sessions back then.”
“You can find something spiritual about almost all of his music,” Adler said. “It’s something that goes beyond just being a pop song, there’s always something deeper than that in a Dylan song.”
Bud Light recruited EDM stars Zedd & Afrojack, while Bob Dylan was showcased in spots from two different advertisers: one for Greek yogurt, and the other for a longtime Detroit automaker.
While Bob Dylan will cede the main stage to the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Bruno Mars handle the actual Super Bowl performance, the man’s face and music will appear throughout the game thanks to Chrysler motor vehicles and Chobani yogurt.
