The New Basement Tapes perform “Kansas City,” featuring lead vocals by Marcus Mumford (Mumford and Sons), Johnny Depp (yes, THE Johhny Depp/actor) and Jim James and Dawes on instrumental and back-up vocals. This song is from the Showtime documentary Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued and the album Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes. For those of you unfamiliar, the documentary  goes behind the scenes as five of today’s most talented songwriters create and record new music, in two fast and furious weeks at the Capitol building, using long-lost, newly discovered lyrics from Bob Dylan’s Basement Tapes sessions. The show premieres Friday, November 21st at 9PM ET/PT.
