Rhiannon Giddens and Iron & Wine team up for Joe Henry-produced Bob Dylan cover

Nonesuch has released a digital single of a cover of the classic Dylan song “Forever Young,” performed by Rhiannon Giddens and Iron & Wine.  The song was produced by Joe Henry and featured in the series finale of NBC’s Parenthood.

Giddens, as you’ll recall, has worked with JH as both a member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops and as a solo act (she was a guest on last year’s JH projects Look Again To The Wind and Caitriona O’Leary’s The Wexford Carols).

Rhiannon Giddens profile is likely to raised even further in the coming weeks with the release of her T Bone Burnett-produced solo debut, Tomorrow Is My Turn (due Feb. 10 on Nonesuch).  She was recently featured in a lengthy feature by The New York Times’ Jon Pareles and also participated in Burnett’s hand-picked ensemble for 2014’s The New Basement Tapes.
