Justin Vernon w/ Bon Iver in Austin in 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Bon Iver

Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, who recently collaborated with Kanye West, and is also about release a new Volcano Choir album (aka his collaborative project with experimental rockers Collections of Colonies of Bees), is also working on a project with gospel group The Blind Boys of Alabama, who have been around since the 1930s. Earlier this year, he announced he'd be producing their new album, I'll Find A Way (due out 10/1 via Sony Masterworks), and it's since been revealed that he's contributing his vocals to a cover of Bob Dylan's "Every Grain of Sand" for the album. You can listen to that track now over at Pitchfork, and check out the full tracklist (which also includes collaborations with My Brightest Diamond, Sam Amidon, tUnE-yArDs, and more) below.

Speaking of Bob Dylan, his tour comes to the NYC-area for its first of five shows this week. The first show was initially supposed to happen in Bridgeport, CT on Friday (7/19) at The Ballpark at Harbor Yard with My Morning Jacket and Wilco, but that show has been moved to Bridgeport's Webster Bank Arena, and MMJ and Wilco are no longer on the bill. UPDATE: MMJ and Wilco are still playing. Tickets for the Webster Bank Arena show are available, and all tickets purchased for the Ballpark at Harbor Yard show will be honored.

The other NYC-area shows will go on as planned on 7/21 at Saratoga Performing Arts Center with My Morning Jacket and Wilco (tickets), 7/26 at Hoboken's Pier A Park with MMJ and Wilco (tickets), 7/27 at Jones Beach with Beck and Wilco (tickets), and 7/28 at Susquehanna Bank Center with MMJ and Wilco, which is also part of the 3-day XPoNential Music Festival in Camden (Bob Dylan tix, XPoNential Fest passes).

Dylan, Wilco and MMJ kicked off the tour towards the end of last month, and at their recent Toronto show (7/15), Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and MMJ's Jim James joined Dylan on stage for a cover of traditional song "Twelve Gates to the City" and for Dylan's own "Blowin' in the Wind." You can watch a video of the former (via Consequence of Sound), along with the setlist from that show, below.

Bob Dylan also just announced that he'll release Bootleg Series. Vol. 10: Another Self Portrait (1969-1971), a box set that collects rarities and outtakes from the Self Portrait and New Morning era, on August 27. The trailer video and tracklist for the box set are below.

Updated dates are listed, along with all videos and stuff, below...

Are MMJ and Wilco really not on the bill anymore for the 7/19 CT show?

The show is still listed on the MMJ website, the Wilco site, and Dylan's site.

Anyone been to Pier A Park? Is it kinda like Williamsburg Park?

BKV: Where did you get this info that MMJ and Wilco are off the bill at the Connecticut show? Did you make it up? No one else is reporting that...

In what world or country is Saratoga considered the NYC area?

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2013 2:13 PM

Dylan should be opening for Beck and Wilco. Those acts at least have some relevance and interesting music.

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2013 2:13 PM

Its sad to say, but Dylan should retire from touring. Its just embarrassing at this point.

Posted by Anonymous | July 17, 2013 2:20 PM

People still pay to see Dylan play. Why would he retire?

2:13: Obviously a country where the person writing for Brooklyn Vegan is from the Midwest and has no idea of local NY state geography. Saratoga Performing Arts Center is almost 200 miles away from NYC

1:45 read the post again . . . you too jennifer

1:45 #1 - Google Maps, dude. Open grass lawn, facing NYC. Pretty nice.

2:13, in the world of college admission brochures, where any college in New York state within 400 miles claims its proximity to NYC as a plus

Bob Dylan ? Old Dad Rock. Boring snoozefest for old assholes.

I'd love to see Mr. Zimmerman perform live once again.

I'm going to be going to the Bob Dylan/Wilco/Beck show at Jones Beach on July 27, renting a Zipcar with a friend, and we'd like to get some other people going to the concert to go in on the car with us. Three available seats, $25 per person we'll drive you round trip! email me at limelightprod@gmail.com

You can feel the pain in his voice. The sadness. Yet it's beautiful.

Fabulous. I saw the fall show at the Hollywood Bowl and loved it, but the shows have been getting better and better and better, full of wonderful surprises like this and The Weight on July 24. A tremendous time to appreciate our troubador.
