As promised, filmmaker Michael Moore has lent his voice to the Occupy Wall Street benefit album with his very own rendition of Bob Dylan's "The Times They are a-Changin.'"

The three-minute, 30-second cover features Moore on the lead vocals with clips of what sound like him addressing an Occupy gathering.

The song was released online Friday ahead of the planned May 15 release for "Occupy this Album." Described as "99 tracks -- 99 artists for the 99 percent," other big-name talents set to be featured include Crosby and Nash, Joan Baez, Third Eye Blind, Willie Nelson and Yoko Ono with all proceeds going to benefit the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Moore had teased the song on his Twitter page Thursday, describing it as "a little surprise" for his followers.

"They had asked me 2 direct a music video of the album. I said,'You don't want me 2 sing a song?' They called my bluff & said 'Yes!Sing!' Ha!" Moore tweeted.
