The audiobook edition of Bob Dylan‘s new book, “The Philosophy Of Modern Song,” will feature an all-star cast.
Dylan, along with Jeff Bridges, Steve Buscemi, John Goodman, Oscar Isaac, Helen Mirren, Rita Moreno, Sissy Spacek, Alfre Woodard, Jeffrey Wright and Renee Zellweger, will be narrating the seven-hour audiobook, according to Uncut.
“The Philosophy Of Modern Song” publisher Simon & Schuster announced that the book and its accompanying audio version will be released in November.
It is the Nobel Prize laureate’s first book since 2004’s “Chronicles: Volume One.”
Dylan, who began working on the book in 2010, offers his extraordinary insight into the nature of popular music. He writes over sixty essays focusing on songs by other artists, including Stephen Foster, Elvis Costello, Hank Williams and Nina Simone.
“The Philosophy of Modern Song” contains much of what Dylan has learned about his craft since the 1960s.
