Bob Dylan has shared a flashy, 2022 edition of the 1960s video for "Subterranean Homesick Blues," featuring new artwork and flashcards by artists like Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith and many, many more. 

The OG clip for "Subterranean Homesick Blues" was filmed by D.A. Pennebaker and doubled as the introduction to Pennebaker's documentary Don't Look Back. While the song remains the same and the new video follows the same basic concept as the original — it's essentially a lyric video using cue cards — this 2022 edition is a lot more dynamic and visually complex. 

It's another piece of Columbia's Dylan60 campaign, which celebrates Dylan's first 60 years as a recording artist. The new video features designs by Patti Smith, John Squire, Bruce Springsteen, Noel Fielding, Jim Jarmusch, Bobby Gillespie, Kate Gibb, Jonathan Barnbrook, Eric Haze and a whole lot more. The vast majority of these artists don't actually appear in the video, but some of their handwriting does! 

The video for "Subterranean Homesick Blues 2022," an accompanying augmented reality lens filter, and the original clip are all available on the Dylan60 website.
