In honour of Bob Dylan’s 50th anniversary as a recording artist, Sony Music Canada asked his fans to pay tribute to him by recreating the concept behind his iconic clip for “Subterranean Homesick Blues.”
The result was a lyric video for “Duquesne Whistle,” created by Dylan’s Canadian fans. The video premiered today on Metrolyrics and you can scroll down to watch the video below.
Forty-five years ago, the world’s first ever lyric video appeared in the documentary film about Dylan titled Don’t Look Back. “Subterranean Homesick Blues” unknowingly became the blueprint for the modern day lyric video. “Duquesne Whistle” can be found on Dylan’s new album, Tempest, which has received stellar reviews from fans and critics alike.
