Bob Dylan to make surprise guest appearance

The legend gets funky for singer's new album

Bob Dylan has made a rare guest spot, helping out on funk star Gary Cooper‘s project Mudbone.

The legend has lent his piano skills to the track ‘Home’, on the new release from the former Parliament and Funkadelic vocalist.

The album, ‘Fresh Mud’, has been put together with the help of former Eurythmics mainman Dave Stewart, who knows Dylan and asked him to pitch in for Mudbone.

Dave had already recorded the acoustic piano with Bob Dylan at his home, as they are friends,” Cooper told NME.COM. “When we listened to the piano part, it fitted in really well with an idea Dave and I had been working on. So we tried it out, liked it and ended up using it in the track called ‘Home’.”

‘Fresh Mud’ is released on October 2. Meanwhile Dylan releases his own new album, ‘Modern Times’, on August 28.
