Thirteen contemporary artists, including Jack White and Bob Dylan, were tasked with taking unfinished lyrics and ideas written by the late Hank Williams and turning them into full-fledged songs. The collection, titled The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams, will be released on October 3.
The notes in question were found after the country legend's death in a leather briefcase that had belonged to him. Hank Williams died in 1953 at the age of 29.
According to Rolling Stone, this was originally conceived as a solo project for the senior Dylan (whose son Jakob appears on the song "Oh, Mama, Come Home"), but he ended up singing on a single track, "The Love That Faded."
