Jeff Bridges and Helen Mirren have been listed as just two of the names who will be reading chapters on the audiobook edition of Bob Dylan‘s forthcoming essay collection.The book, The Philosophy of Modern Song, contains over 60 essays written by Dylan about songs by artists such as Stephen Foster, Elvis Costello, Hank Williams and Nina Simone.

It is set for release on November 1.Sissy Spacek, Oscar Isaac and Steve Buscemi will also be reading essays written by Dylan.

The full list of guests was published by Variety, alongside which essays they will each lend their voice to.Dylan himself will also be reading parts of the audiobook, but he will not be taking on any full chapters.

Instead, he will read short introductions or interstitial pieces that appear between the essays, which the book’s publisher Simon and Schuster described as “a series of dream-like riffs that, taken together, resemble an epic poem and add to the work’s transcendence.”The Philosophy of the Modern Song has been over a decade in the making, with Dylan first commencing work on it back in 2010.
