About this deal

As he explained to Uncut, "We did 'Things Have Changed' in one afternoon, and when we were done we did a very quick mix of it, and I thought it was just going to be a rough mix to give to Bob who’d maybe give it to someone else, like Daniel Lanois, who’d wind up engineering and mixing the final thing. Willoughby, Sydney, New South Wales, 25 March 2001, Taping for the Oscar Awards Ceremony in Los Angeles, California". In truth, ‘Things Have Changed’ is often considered one of Dylan’s later-period gems, and rightly so.

Shaw hoped to include this unreleased version on Volume 8 of Dylan's Bootleg Series, Tell Tale Signs.The lyrics make reference to "dancing lessons", "the jitterbug rag" and dressing "in drag", all of which feature in the plot of the film.

Many modern musicians still regard it as one of his best tracks, including Eagles’ very own Don Henley. For Henley, Dylan is “the quintessential enigmatic character” who’s been able to “maintain a certain mystery that he cultivated from the very beginning”. He intercut footage of Dylan with sequences from the feature film, to suggest that Dylan was interacting with the film's characters. Keith Negus, in a 2021 essay on Bob Dylan's single releases, praised his vocal performance on the track for being perfectly married to the subject matter of the song: "The deceptively quirky production of a lilting, minor-key, country-blues shuffle enhances the way Dylan delivers the lyrics in keeping with the character's world-weariness and increasingly stoned and cynical outlook.The video appears on the bonus DVD included in the Limited Edition version of Dylan's 2006 album Modern Times.

Clinton Heylin, in his account of Dylan's songs between 1974 and 2008, believes the song was recorded at Sony Studios, New York, probably on July 25 and 26, 1999.According to Gray, Eddy's producer Lee Hazlewood heard one Texan say to another, "Your girl has a face like forty miles of bad road", and immediately recognised the remark's potential as a song title. Things Have Changed" is a Dylan song in the style of "Time Out of Mind" and is excellent, as expected.
