Reimagine Music is is releasing Subterranean Homesick Blues: A Tribute to Bob Dylan’s Bringing It All Back Home. According to the Associated Press, “A new project aims to introduce Bob Dylan’s music to young people by having buzz-worthy indie artists cover one of his best-known albums in a digital-only format.” Apparently, the generation of music listeners I belong is composed entirely of hipsters that only listens to shitty Indie musicians, and needs this album to “introduce” it to Bob Dylan.
