Bob Dylan re-records ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ on one of T Bone Burnett’s Ionic Original discs

The new recording will help launch the new Ionic Original, and will be up for auction this July

Bob Dylan has re-recorded ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ for the first time in 60 years. The record marks the debut of the Ionic Original format disc, the new medium by T Bone Burnett which Burnett claims will be “the pinnacle of recorded sound”.

The disc will be completely unique and will only be able to be listened to at Christie’s, London, where the auction is set to take place on July 7.

“Christie’s is excited to be offering this unique recording of Bob Dylan’s ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’, one of the most important songs written in the last century, on this groundbreaking new ‘Ionic Original’ format,” said Peter Klarnet, a senior specialist at Christie’s.

“I very much share T Bone Burnett’s passion for the sonic excellence of analog sound and it is fitting that this important development is being offered as a stand-out lot in ‘The Exceptional Sale’, London on 7 July 2022.”

T Bone Burnett has also expressed his excitement ahead of the auction, stating that: Sixty years after Bob first wrote and recorded ‘Blowin’ in the Wind’, he is giving us a new recording of his song. One that is both deeply relevant for our times and resonant with decades of the artist’s life and experience. We’re grateful to Christie’s for their belief in the ‘Ionic Original’ and for presenting Bob’s masterful recording to the world in a unique and meaningful way.”
