Bob Dylan and Jack White Recording Unheard Hank Williams Songs

(Gibson) Bob Dylan and Jack White are among the artists who've contributed to a collection of previously unheard songs by country legend Hank Williams. The set, titled The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams, also features Sheryl Crow, Norah Jones, Levon Helm and Jakob Dylan, among others.

As the album's title implies, the songs on the disc were crafted from notes found in a leather briefcase that had belonged to Williams, following the country star's death. Song ideas and lyrics found in the briefcase have been fleshed out by the 13 artists featured on the new album.

As reported by Rolling Stone, the album was originally conceived as a Dylan solo project, but later evolved into a multi-artist tribute. The disc will be released October 4 on Dylan's imprint, Egyptian Records. more on this story
