Celebrating Bob Dylan’s 60th Anniversary as a recording artist!
May 6, 2022
To commemorate Bob Dylan’s 60th Anniversary as a recording artist of immeasurable musical and cultural impact, a new music video, “Subterranean Homesick Blues 2022,” – featuring a kinetic collage of visuals by a diverse array of artists inspired by the original video’s lyric cue cards – has been launched.
The original “Subterranean Homesick Blues” video was shot in 1965 in an alley behind the Savoy Hotel in London. It features Bob Dylan dropping a total of 64 cards with phrases from the song. The video has a claim to being the first ever lyric video.
By remaking the video with a diverse cast of graphic designers, film makers, musicians and visual artists we contemporise it and celebrate 60 years of Dylan’s creative genius.
As a companion to “Subterranean Homesick Blues 2022”, fans may experience an Augmented Reality lens filter, on Instagram and Snapchat, that allows users to try on a virtual pair of Bob Dylan’s iconic Ray Ban sunglasses while a select 10-second loop of the new “Subterranean Homesick Blues 2022” video plays in the lenses.
The new music film and AR lens filter may be found on the new Dylan60 microsite, which also includes both the original and the newly-designed lyric/cue cards and the classic original clip starring Bob Dylan.
