Bob Dylan is currently re – recording some of his classic songs in high – pitched sound, revealed by producer T Bone Burnett.
According to Burnett, he and Dylan were in the studio to record the new songs as part of Burnett’s new hi-fi media release, Ionic Originals.
This new medium is considered to be the first major breakthrough in analog audio reproduction for over 70 years: “The original ionic version is the cornerstone of recorded audio. It is an archival quality. It is secure for the future. It is unique.” Ionic Original is not only the equivalent of a painting, but it is a painting.
“It’s lacquer painted on an aluminum disc, with a spiral engraved by music. However, this picture has the added quality of having that music, which can be heard by inserting a stylus into the spiral and turning it. “
It is not clear what form Ionic Original will take, when we will hear Dylan’s newly recorded songs, or which songs have been redeveloped, but a press release says that Burnett’s creation is intended to “reset the value of recorded music”.
The most famous music re-enactment currently active in the industry is the case of Taylor Swift, who in 2020 confirmed that she intends to re-record the songs from her first six albums in an attempt to regain control of her music after the Music manager. Scooter Braun and its media holding company, Ithaca Holdings LLC, acquired Swift’s former label, Big Machine Label Group, back in June 2019.
To date, he has released re – recorded versions of his albums ‘Fearless’ and ‘Red’, and other artists, including Snoop Dogg, have indicated that they have thought of doing something similar.
On the other hand, Bob Dylan recently announced a series of new tour dates for the West Coast of the United States this summer. Check out the full list of tour dates below and get your tickets here.
