Slash and Aaron Freeman Cover Bob Dylan For New Album

The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash has joined forces with Aaron Freeman in order to pay tribute to Bob Dylan this month.

Even though the song Slash and Freeman covered wasn’t released until the 90s under Dylan’s Under the Red Sky LP, the duo has released their version of Bob Dylan’s Wiggle Wiggle meant for the upcoming Bob Dylan in the 80s: Volume One compilation. The cover features Freeman’s vocals over awesome Slash's solos.

As ATO records wrote in their press release, the compilation album is meant to “shed new light on a large Cache of Bob Dylan songs that have long gone ignored, covering the period starting with the 1980s Saved and ending with the 1990s Under the Red Sky”.

Bob Dylan in the 80s: Volume One will be featuring covers from artists like Built to Spill, Glen Hansard, Reggie Watts, Elvis Perkins, and many others. In fact, Rolling Stone premiered Built to Spill’s version of Jokerman just last month.

The complete track listed, as listed by ATO Records is as follows:

‘Got My Mind Made Up’ – Langhorne Slim & The Law

‘Jokerman’ – Built to Spill

‘Brownsville Girl (Reprise)’ – Reggie Watts

‘Sweetheart Like You’ – Craig Finn

‘You Changed My Life’ – Ivan & Alyosha

‘Night After Night’ – Deer Tick

‘Dark Eyes’ – Dawn Landes & Bonnie “Prince” Billie

‘Waiting To Get Beat’ – Tea Leaf Green

‘Wiggle Wiggle’ – Aaron Freeman & Slash

‘Congratulations’ – Elvis Perkins

‘Covenant Woman’ – Hannah Cohen

‘Every Grain of Sand’ – Marco Benevento

‘Series of Dreams’ – Yellowbirds

‘Unbelievable’ – Blitzen Trapper

‘When The Night Comes Falling From The Sky’ – Lucius

‘Pressing On’ – Glen Hansard

‘Death Is Not The End’ – Carl Broemel

Bob Dylan in the 80s: Volume One is scheduled for release on March 25th. While you’re waiting, you should definitely check out Slash and Freeman’s cover of Wiggle Wiggle on Stereogum, here.
