The Dylan/Jack White/Hank Williams project

PASTE magazine caters for followers of grown-up rock and Americana, so it’s no surprise that its scoop of last week that Dylan and Jack White have been working together on a collection of unfinished Hank Williams songs is currently its “Most Read” News article.

According to PASTE, Dylan has acquired the lyrics that Williams was working on when he died and has involved White in a project to complete them. The first fruit is apparently a recording of a song entitled You Know That I Know.

What a mouth-watering prospect – Dylan working with the best younger rocker of all, on songs by one of the greatest popular musicians of the first half of the last century … watch The Dylan Daily for progress reports.
