The Carolina Chocolate Drops have a couple new recordings appearing on recent compilations albums. Rhiannon Giddens’ vocals on these songs are spine-tingling and the band is rocking on a Dylan cover.
First is their version of Bob Dylan’s “Political World” which appears on Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan, an album celebrating Amnesty International’s 50th anniversary.
The second is “Daughter’s Lament” from The Hunger Games OST.
