“Whatever she sings acquires the fierce, confessional intensity of someone who barely lived to tell the tale.” – New York Times

FOR HER TENTH ALBUM and first album on a major label in nearly 30 years, legendary soul singer BETTYE LAVETTE takes on the songs of BOB DYLAN with the grit and experience that makes her one of the greatest living soul singers.

THINGS HAVE CHANGED is a masterpiece of interpretation of one of the greatest songwriters alive, by one of the greatest soul singers alive. Keith Richards and Trombone Shorty guest on the Steve Jordan-produced album, which is set for release on Verve Records on March 30.

Since the great 21st century rediscovery of Bettye LaVette returned her to prominence, she has worked extensively in the rock and folk idioms, with her unique takes on songs by the likes of The Who, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Fiona Apple, and Dolly Parton. But never before has she devoted an entire album to the material of one songwriter.
