“Modern music and songs are so institutionalised that you don’t realise it.”

— Bob Dylan, songwriter, musician, lyricist, Nobel Prize


Excerpted from The Guardian interview

On the appeal of songs from the pre-rock age

“These songs are some of the most heartbreaking stuff ever put on record and I wanted to do them justice. Now that I have lived them and lived through them, I understand them better. They take you out of that mainstream grind, where you’re trapped between differences which might seem different but are essentially the same. Modern music and songs are so institutionalised that you don’t realise it. These songs are cold and clear-sighted, there is a direct realism in them, faith in ordinary life, just like in early rock’n’roll.”
