Hear Blake Shelton’s Cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Forever Young’

Blake Shelton has recorded a version of Bob Dylan‘s 1974 classic, “Forever Young,” for the upcoming family film Max.

The movie, which starts Josh Wiggins, Thomas Haden Church, Robbie Amell and Lauren Graham, among others, is about a Belgian Malinois dog (a popular military breed) that returns from war in Afghanistan, traumatized by his owner’s death during the war. The Marine’s family takes in the dog, as they all — dog included — work through their grief over the loss.

Shelton is joined on the tune by his former The Voice team member and tour partner Gwen Sebastian, who provides harmonies.

Shelton is currently riding up the charts with his latest single, “Sangria,” from his 2014 Bringing Back the Sunshine album. If the song, which is currently at No. 4, reaches the top of the charts, it will be Shelton’s 15th consecutive No. 1 hit.

Max will open in theaters nationwide on June 26, but chances are, it will be a while before Shelton has time to see the movie. The singer is spending most of the summer on the road. See a list of all of his upcoming shows on his website.

This isn’t the first time “Forever Young” has been used in a feature film. It was previously sung by Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders for 1995’s Free Willy 2. The song has been covered by everyone from Diana Ross to Norah Jones.
