New Bob Dylan Tracks For Soundtrack

Legendary singer songwriter BOB DYLAN has recorded new versions of two of his own classics and two covers of traditional songs for the soundtrack to forthcoming movie MASKED AND ANONYMOUS.

LIKE A ROLLING STONE rocker Bob also acts in the movie - his first film role since 1987's HEARTS OF FIRE.

Bob, 62, has re-recorded 1997 song COLD IRONS BOUND and DOWN IN THE FLOOD, which appeared on the 1971 collection GREAT HITS, VOL 2.

And the veteran has also taped his takes on traditional songs DIAMOND JOE and DIXIE.

The remainder of the soundtrack is made up by artists covering Bob's songs including THE GRATEFUL DEAD and LOS LOBOS.

Bob's character in Masked and Anonymous, JACK FATE, is a drifting musician brought out of prison by an ex-manager to play one last gig for charity.
