Kesha and Bob Dylan have some amazing new music out – but with a twist.

Dylan has rerecorded the classic song She’s Funny That Way and turned it into a gay love anthem.

The iconic singer has renamed the track He’s Funny That Way for the Universal Love EP. Most of the songs on the album feature switched gender pronouns.

The MGM Resorts International-funded  collection serves as songs perfect for same-sex couple weddings, according to creators.

Dylan’s track, from the Great American Songbook catalog, is from 1929.

Meanwhile pop star Kesha also contributes a song called I Need A Woman To Love to the mini album.

‘Shouldn’t these popular songs be open to everyone?’

‘If you look at the history of pop music, love songs have predominantly come from one heterosexual perspective,’ Tom Murphy, a co-producer told the New York Times.

He furthermore explained: ‘If we view music as something that brings people together, shouldn’t these popular songs be open to everyone?’

The publication notes that it is believed to be the first time Dylan has signalled support for LGBTI rights.

The six song record also features Bloc Party singer Kele Okereke singing My Guy and St. Vincent singing And Then She Kissed Me.

Benjamin Gibbered and Valerie June contribute the last two songs – And I Love Him and Mad About the Girl, respectively.
