Listen to Miley Cyrus, Kesha, Darren Criss on Massive Bob Dylan Tribute Album
To celebrate Amnesty International’s 50-year history, the organization is releasing ‘Chimes of Freedom,’ a 76-track, four-CD collection of Bob Dylan songs performed by a wide range of artists, including some that you might not expect. Adele, Kesha, Miley Cyrus, and ‘Glee‘ star Darren Criss are among those who tackle classic Dylan songs.
Kesha’s performance on ‘Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right’ might be the most surprising. The dance-pop singer shows a completely different side by performing nearly a cappella, her voice breaking as she delicately delivers the words with only a brief string accompaniment.
Cyrus, the youngest performer on the album, sounds like a country crooner on the acoustic ‘You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go.’ Criss and his brother Chuck, who plays in Freelance Whales, harmonize on ‘New Morning,’ while Adele contributes a live recording of ‘Make You Feel Me Love.’
Other artists who contribute the project include Lenny Kravitz, Raphael Saadiq, Sugarland, My Chemical Romance, and Bob Dylan himself, who rounds out the collection with the title track. The set will be available for purchase on Jan. 24.
