New project tackles 'lost' Bob Dylan songs

Minnesota's own Bob Dylan has a new project--one that's sort of out of his hands.

Five of today's biggest artists -- Elvis Costello, Rhiannon Giddens (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) -- are writing music for 24 recently discovered lyrics Dylan jotted down in 1967. The words were originally intended to be part of "The Basement Tapes" with the Band, but they apparently didn't make the cut.T Bone Burnett is producing.

Showtime is taping the collaboration for a special that will also include stories about the impact of "The Basement Tapes." That will air later this year.
