Two very different takes on Dylan.
Bob Dylan

Here's Phosphorescent's contribution to Starbucks' 2014 Sweetheart compilation, a collection of artists covering their favorite love songs - Matthew Houck and company chose Bob Dylan's deep-cut demo "Tomorrow is a Long Time." It's a lovely cover - Houck's singular, heart-rendering voice reckons with Dylan's lyrics over a pretty, lilting guitar line and distant organ sounds; it's the perfect soundtrack for driving into the sunset yearning for a lost someone. Check it out.

In other Bob Dylan cover news, Built To Spill share their version of "Jokerman," recorded for a compilation dedicated to the nadir of Dylan's legendary career: the 1980s.

Bob Dylan In The 80s: Volume One is out March 25.
