Elvis Costello and Marcus Mumford have signed up to help music producer T Bone Burnett turn lost Bob Dylan lyrics into songs for a new tribute album.

My Morning Jacket star Jim James and Rhiannon Giddens of Carolina Chocolate Drops have also joined the project.

“Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes” is set for release this autumn to coincide with a new documentary called “Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued,” directed by Sam Jones.

The lyrics come from Dylan’s 1967 “Basement Tapes” sessions.
