Any excuse to get more people to hear Adele's version of Make You Feel My Love is fine by us!
Amnesty Interntaional is putting an all-star tribute album out to celebrate the man, myth and legend that is Bob Dylan. The charity album, dubbed Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 years of Amnety International, will feature some of the biggest names in music singing some of Dylan's best. Sting, Dave Matthews Band and Adele are attached to the disc, as well as Patti Smith singing Drifter's Escape, My Morning Jacket singing You're A Big Girl Now and perhaps the biggest surprise of them all, Ke$ha performing Don't Think Twice, It's All Right.
Of the latter, Ke$ha reveals that she has always been a big admirer of Dylan and was honored to be asked to be a part of the video. She says:
"When you think of me, you wouldn't think of Bob Dylan. My music is more about the going crazy than politics. But he's a huge influence - he write his own music and means what he says. I write my own music and I f*cking mean every word I sing."
Same thing, we guess.
What's even more surprising than her inclusion on the album is the fact that she got so emotional while recording. She admitted that she actually broke down and started crying in the studio.
Wouldn't have taken her to be the crying type! Must've been a powerful experience for her.
Check for this to be out on 11/22!
