DYLAN ‘WAITING…’ FOR ANOTHER OSCAR?

What are the chances of another Oscar for Dylan then?...

Bob Dylan and LAURYN HILL have both written new songs for the soundtrack to forthcoming new film ‘DIVINE SECRETS OF THE YA-YA SISTERHOOD.

Macy Gray‘s track, ‘Waiting For You’, is the first he has written specifically for a feature film since ‘Things Have Changed’ for the Curtis Hanson-helmed ‘The Wonder Boys’ in 2000. That track earned the rock legend his first Oscar.

Meanwhile, Lauryn Hill‘s ‘Selah’ is the first new material to spring from the sometime Fugee since her ‘MTV Unplugged’ album released earlier this year.
