‘I’m Not There’ soundtrack deets

We’re not entirely convinced that Todd Haynes’s Bob Dylan biopic is going to amount to anything more than just a masturbatory exercise in filmmaking. It’s premise seems pretty stupid, what with six different actors all portraying Dylan at varying times of his career, and the early footage that we’ve seen looks like a Mr. Show sketch – complete with David Cross playing Allen Ginsberg.

But that doesn’t mean that the music for the film won’t be dope. Rodrigo over at The Playlist (quickly turning into one of our must reads every morning) has the skinny on the entire soundtrack. According to him, there are going to be plenty of Dylan covers from the likes of Eddie Vedder, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Mason Jennings (yes! yes! yes!), Jeff Tweedy, Stephen Malkmus, Sufjan Stevens, Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Charlotte Gainsberg, Willie Nelson, The Hold Steady and The Black Keys.

Wow! So if that doesn’t bake your noodle, then what about Calexico being the house band for the entire project? Also, The Million Dollar Bashers will be featured on several cuts. This thing will probably be a two or three CD set judging by the amount of music contained.

Track list after the jump! Soundtrack will be released on 10.31
