Rolling Stone is reporting that Bob Dylan will be releasing a new album in April. The set, which is his first album of new material since 2006’s Modern Times, will have ten tracks, but is still missing a title, and a firm release date (it’s just promised for late April).
You could argue that Dylan has had more exposure in the last few years than he has since the mid-70s, what with the movies about him (No Direction Home and I’m Not There), and all the commercials he’s been popping up in lately (like a Pepsi ad). Every Dylan album is treated as an event, but this one is setting up to have a bigger push than a lot of his recent albums. [Rolling Stone]
