Soul Icon Returns with Album of Bob Dylan Songs Produced by Steve Jordan and Featuring Keith Richards and Trombone Shorty

For her tenth album and first album on a major label in nearly thirty years, legendary soul singer Bettye LaVette takes on the songs of Bob Dylan with the grit and experience that makes her one of the greatest living soul singers. Things Have Changed is a masterpiece of interpretation of one of the greatest songwriters alive, by one of the greatest soul singers alive. Keith Richards and Trombone Shorty guest on the Steve Jordan-produced album.

Things Have Changed spans more than five decades of Dylan songs, from 1964's immortal "The Times They Are A-Changin'" up to "Ain't Talkin'," the epic final track on his 2006 album Modern Times. Things Have Changed sees Dylan's songs seriously transformed: "I had never really listened to ‘It Ain't Me Babe,'" she says, "But I had to make it more dismissive – not fast and hard, but like a Jimmy Reed tune. And ‘The Times They Are A-Changin,' I had to flip that all the way around, so we worked up the groove on a beat box. That just made it extremely surprising."

To pull off these transformations, LaVette needed a producer who was up to the challenge, and found the perfect collaborator in Steve Jordan, former drummer in David Letterman's house band, who has worked with everyone from Chuck Berry to John Mayer. Jordan brought in an A Team of musicians, including Dylan's long-time guitarist Larry Campbell, bass virtuoso Pino Palladino, and keyboardist Leon Pendarvis. The group was in such sync that the whole album was cut in just three days. Later, Keith Richards added guitar and is featured on "Political World" and New Orleans ace Trombone Shorty joined for "What Was It You Wanted."
