Bob Dylan will contribute a new song, “Cross the Green Mountain,”
to the soundtrack of the upcoming Civil War epic Gods and
Generals. The song will premiere on AOL’s “Listen First”
series on January 18th along with another cut from the soundtrack,
“Going Home,” by classical artist, Mary Fahl.
The soundtrack will be available on February 4th while the
movie, starring Robert Duvall, Jeff Daniels and Mira Sorvino, hits
theaters on February 21st. For a limited time the soundtrack will
be available as a CD/DVD featuring the music videos for the Dylan
and Fahl songs as well as five scenes cut from the film. The score
for the film was written by John Frizzell and Randy Edelman, and
features fiddle solos by Mark O’Connor.
Meanwhile Dylan heads down under next month, playing shows in
Australia and New Zealand through February.
