Bob Dylan releases 2022 version of 'Subterranean Homesick Blues' music video

music news 12/05/2022

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of Bob Dylan signing with Columbia Records, the two music giants have remade the iconic 1965 'Subterranean Homesick Blues' music video. 

The original clip features lyric cards that were hand-made by Dylan and his friends at the time, Donovan Leitch, Allen Ginsberg, and Bob Neuwirth (some of whom are actually visible in the background).

The modern-day remake contains the same lyrics, but uses modern graphic design and animation technology. 

Columbia Records have created a website for the anniversary - dylan60.com. The creators of the new lyric cards are also credited on the site and are shown in contrast to the originals.

The original clip, now recognised as one of the first-ever music videos, is actually the beginning of the 1967 documentary 'Don't Look Back' which  chronicled Dylan's 1965 tour of England.

The song has even been cited in courtrooms (the most out of any song ever!), especially the lyric "You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows". 

Dylan signed with Columbia records in 1962 and has released 39 albums with the studio since.
