Bob Dylan’s ‘World Gone Wrong‘ was chosen for the opening and closing scenes of the latest episode of the Showtime series Billions — Season 4, Episode 4, “Overton Window“.
The song was originally the title track of Bob Dylan’s 29th studio album World Gone Wrong. Released in October, 1993, the album was quite dark, comprising all covers of traditional folk songs that were sung acoustically.
The album was recorded in Dylan’s garage in just two weeks. Yet, even with the primitive production, World Gone Wrong eventually earned Dylan a Grammy Award (his fifth at the time). This time for Best Traditional Folk Album.
As for Billions, it stars Paul Giamatti, Damian Lewis, Maggie Siff, Malin Akerman and Toby Leonard Moore. Season 4 of the series kicked off in mid-March, and is currently getting the positive reviews the previous series were also given.
