New Dylan Album ‘Rough & Rowdy Ways’ Due June 19th

Bob Dylan has announced his first album of original songs in eight years.

‘Rough And Rowdy Ways’ will be released on 19thJune. It follows three albums of cover versions with his previous album of his own songs, Tempest, released in 2012.

Two songs from the new album have been released in recent weeks. Murder Most Foul is his longest song ever at 17 minutes, a mystical reflection on the JFK assassination that also rakes over decades of American popular culture.

Dylan has now released an upbeat blues-rock number called False Prophet, where Dylan voices the figure in the title with a certain swagger: “I ain’t no false prophet / I just said what I said / I’m just here to bring vengeance on somebody’s head.”
