To commemorate its 50th anniversary, Amnesty International has announced the release of an exhaustive four-CD collection of Bob Dylan cover songs. Spanning material from all parts of the folk singer’s long career (he’s been around for about as long as Amnesty International), the compilation, titled Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International, features a full 75 tributes to Dylan.

A ridiculously eclectic array of artists were chosen to cover Dylan’s music for the compilation, including Pete Townshend, Mark Knopfler, Taj Mahal, Elvis Costello, Dave Matthews Band, Lenny Kravitz, Ziggy Marley, Sinéad O’Connor, Bad Religion, Queens of the Stone Age, Cage the Elephant, Adele and Ke$ha, just to name a few. Some of the covers reportedly capture a facet of the artist seldom seen in their original work: According to producer Bob Ezrin, Ke$ha’s version of “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” is built around an emotional, acoustic-based recording the singer recorded in her bedroom, far removed from the dance-pop she’s famous for.

Chimes of Freedom is slated for a North American release on Jan. 24, with a worldwide release planned for Jan. 30. All profits from the collection will benefit Amnesty International. In the meantime, you can stream every track from Chimes of Freedom on Amnesty International’s Facebook page.
