Video Du Jour: Eric Burdon

Our buddy from SXSW Eric Burdon (of the Animals) has a new video out, a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Gotta Serve Somebody.” Burdon and many others appear on the album Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan to celebrate and benefit Amnesty International’s 50th year advocating for human rights.

Google visited Burdon near his home in the desert of Joshua Tree, California, where he and his band offer up a live version of the tune as the sun set behind them. Burdon, a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, is set to release his new album ‘Til Your River Runs Dry on Sept. 18.

The album features original tracks written by Burdon including “Bo Diddley Special,” “The River Is Rising,” “Water,” “Wait” and and “Memorial Day.” ABKCO will support the album’s release with an extensive promotion and marketing campaign in conjunction with a full slate of tour dates by Burdon.
