As we mentioned last year, Bob Dylan’s most recent (non-Christmas) album, Together Through Life, came about after the iconic singer/songwriter became inspired during recording sessions for a soundtrack to the forthcoming Renée Zellweger-starring film My Own Love Song.
It may be a surprise to some that Dylan would agree to contribute new songs to this project, but given that the drama also stars Forest Whitaker, an actor Dylan praised in his memoir, Chronicles: Volume One, it makes perfect sense. What I didn’t see coming, however, was that Zellweger performs the Dylan-penned song “Life Is Hard” in the film.
Well, the trailer hit the internet earlier this week (via Playlist), which includes part of Zellweger’s solid take on the tune towards the end. Another clip was released, as well, of Zellweger singing Woody Guthrie’s infamous folk song “This Land Is Your Land.” Check out both videos below.
