Dylan goes cosy: soft-pop release suggests the times have a-changed
It’s time to relax, unwind and put on a best-selling album celebrating the “new cosy” – a collection of the softest sounds recorded by music’s biggest names.
But the musical equivalent of a winter nightcap has landed a surprise recruit after Bob Dylan, once the voice of radical protest, lent his nasal whine to the latest release.
In a final blow to pop’s former rebellious spirit, Keep Calm and Stay Cosy, an album of Radio 2-friendly songs that is expected to be one of this Chrismas’s top stocking fillers, features Dylan’s 1997 ballad “Make You Feel My Love”, a song popularised by Adele and given new life as a staple for X Factor contestants.
The 71-year-old Dylan, whose songs include “Masters of War”, “A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall” and “Maggie’s Farm”, features on the 58-track triple CD alongside Emeli Sandé, James Blunt and Bruno Mars.
