Sting is the latest to announce his contribution to “Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International”, a new charity compilation that will benefit the human rights organization.The album, set to be released in North America on November 22nd, will be comprised of Bob Dylan covers. Modern blues sensation, Adele, will be singing “Make You Feel My Love”. Sting will be joining Dave Matthews Band and My Morning Jacket to record “You’re A Big Girl Now”. Rise Against will play a unique version of “Ballad of Hollis Brown”, and Bad Religion and Lucinda Williams are teaming up for “Tryin’ to Get to Heaven.”Dylan’s long-time friend, Patti Smith, will also be contributing to the album with a cover of “Drifter’s Escape.”“I wanted to do something I’ve never attempted,” Smith explains. “We had just completed our new album, and instead of drinking champagne we decided to cut the song.”Electro-pop superstar Ke$ha plans to perform “Don’t Think Twice. It’s All Right”.In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Ke$ha discusses the influence Dylan has had on her life."When you think of me, you wouldn't think of Bob Dylan," she begins. "My music is more about going crazy than politics. But he's a huge influence - he writes his own music and means what he says. I write my own music and I f**king mean every word I sing."
