An all-star contingency of folk rockers including My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Mumford and Sons’ Marcus Mumford, Elvis Costello, Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith, and Carolina Chocolate Drops’ Rhiannon Giddens recently came together to bring life to a collection of previously lost lyrics by Bob Dylan. The resulting LP, Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes, officially hit stores this week, and the collective is supporting the release with a jaunt through the US TV circuit.
Earlier this week, The New Basement Tapes made their live debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, with Costello singing lead on “Lost on the River”. On Friday, it was Mumford’s turn to serve as frontman, as he sang “Kansas City” on Ellen. Catch the replay below.
The New Basement Tapes will next hit Jimmy Kimmel Live on November 19th. Then, on November 21st, Showtime will air a Sam Jones-directed documentary chronicling the album’s creation.
