CHIMES OF FREEDOM: the songs of Bob Dylan
A new 75-strong set of Bob Dylan cover songs is being released in support of Amnesty International’s human rights work.
Chimes of Freedom features a stellar and diverse group of artists across the generational and musical spectrum. The performers, including many of Amnesty International's longtime supporters, range in age from Miley Cyrus, 19, to folk music legend Pete Seeger, who, at 92, records Dylan's poignant "Forever Young," with a children's chorus.
The diversity of the musicians and musical genres -- from rock, rap, hip-hop to pop, folk, country, jazz and blues -- attests to Amnesty's depth of support in the music community, the universal appeal of the core message of human rights, and the breadth of Dylan's impact on culture. Almost every track on the album is being released for sale for the first time* -- except for the title song, Dylan's original 1964 recording of "Chimes of Freedom."
All of the artists, session musicians, arrangers, engineers, producers and recording studios worked pro bono on the project.
