Michael Moore Records Bob Dylan Song For Occupy Wall Street Album


Michael Moore has recorded a cover of the Bob Dylan song "The Times They Are a-Changin'" for the Occupy Wall Street album, Occupy This Album.

"They had asked me 2 direct a music video of the album," Moore tweeted on Friday. "I said,'You don't want me 2 sing a song?' They called my bluff & said 'Yes! Sing!' Ha!"

In Moore's documentary, The Big One, he jokingly sings a few bars of the track, while accompanying himself on the acoustic guitar.

The compilation includes performances by Patti Smith, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Ani DiFranco and Yoko Ono.

Occupy This Album, which features "99 tracks [and] 99 artists for the 99 percent," is due May 15 via Music for Occupy via Razor & Tie distribution. Proceeds go "directly towards the needs of sustaining this growing movement."
