Audio: Bob Dylan Tribute Album Focuses on ’80s Songs; Download Built To Spill’s ‘Jokerman’

Here comes an unusual Bob Dylan tribute album, Bob Dylan In The 80s: Volume One, which will be released March 25, 2014.

Today we get a taste from Built To Spill, who cover “Jokerman.” In exchange for your email (which goes to ATO Records) you get to download the track. I’ve listened to the track and it’s very cool. Sounds nothing like Dylan, which I think Dylan himself would really appreciate.

“Jokerman” appeared on Dylan’s 1983 album Infidels.

Here’s Dylan’s version:
