U.S. cable network Showtime is to air a documentary that follows artists such as Elvis Costello and Marcus Mumford as they record new music based on long-lost Bob Dylan lyrics.

Due to premiere on November 21 at 9 p.m. EST, Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued (pictured above) is produced by T Bone Burnett and Sam Jones and directed by Jones.

The film takes viewers into the recording studio as Costello, Mumford, My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes and Rhiannon Giddens of Carolina Chocolate Drops create an album with producer Burnett based on lyrics Dylan composed in 1967.

The premiere will coincide with the release of a Burnett-produced studio album on Electromagnetic Recordings/Harvest Records.
