Today, The New Basement Tapes have released a lyric video for Bob Dylan's "Spanish Mary." Watch above, via YouTube

The song is fronted by the Carolina Chocolate Drops' Rhiannon Giddens. The combination of Giddens' vocals and slow banjo picking creates an eerie ballad. The video itself takes the viewer on a journey through a strange world inhabited by cut-out animated monsters. With the camera constantly going deeper into this world, the viewer's eyes will be engaged as they hear the tale of three sailors who were after the love of the titular character.

This track will be on their upcoming album, Lost on the River, due out on November 10th, 2014. You can pre-order on Amazon.
