New Bob Dylan album! Together Through Life

April 28th. The greatest songwriter in the history of the world is back. Again. Studio album #33.

It's called Together Through Life. Here's the cover art -



Kissing in cars. Hot. What do y'all think? Excited? I thought Modern Times was pretty damn brilliant. And it's hard to not get excited when he decides to do something new. If there is a true living legend, it's this guy. Let's talk about Bobby Dylan.

Oh, and there's an on-going Bill Flanagan interview with the man himself about the new album that they're going to update on bobdylan.com

This is awesome news. I've never met a Bob Dylan album, hell, a Dylan song, that I don't love. I can't wait. This is shaping up to be an amazing year for new releases.

That's a great album cover. Mr. Dylan had an off night when I saw him in August, but he's too awesome for me to ever give up on him entirely.

Heard about this last week. Rolling Stone said it has a border town/cantina-type sound, and the accordion player from Los Lobos features heavily . Which has me excited, because I think Modern Times was a bit redundant musically after Love & Theft.

Yeah, I posted that Rolling Stone piece in the Random Thread last week. But the cover art, release date, and album title just came out today, so I figured it deserved a thread of its own.

Yes. Yes, yes, yes. I really love the cover. The blue and red logo and the vintage photograph itself are gorgeous. Good stuff.

I do agree with that, actually. I love both of those albums, but they do sound somewhat similar. I don't really consider that a bad thing, though. They're both brilliant. I prefer Modern Times to Love&Theft, though. I just feel that its lyrics were more fleshed out.

I am a huge fan of that cover. It might be his best album cover, yet. I don't own most of the albums in hard form since I buy most of my music on iTunes, but I've never been a huge fan of his cover art. The Free-wheelin' Bob Dylan has been my favorite up to this point.

A new Bob Dylan record is always good news.

And, yeah, he has an off night or tour sometimes.

And call me Irvine, but that new cover sure looks like two guys kissing.

Which would be kind of awesome.

I have always liked that Nashville Skyline cover. And the rest of the 60's album covers are all iconic images at this point. Blonde On Blonde's blurry portrait is pretty cool.

Can't wait to hear this, Modern Times was a great album. Not really a fan of Love and Theft though...
