Earlier this month, news leaked out that Bob Dylan (you know him) had completed a new album and planned to release it in April. At that time, there wasn’t a firm release date or even a title. But Dylan changed that today, announcing that his 46th(!) album is called Together Through Life, is self-produced, has a cover (to your left), is due out on April 28 via Columbia, and is partially inspired by a film (My Own Love Song, starring Renee Zellwegger, Forest Whitaker, and Nick Nolte) that isn’t even out yet.
In an interview up now at his website, Dylan says that he tried to make the album sound like an old Chess record, and that a song on the album, "Life is Hard," was inspired by the travels the characters go through in the unfinished movie.
There’s no firm tracklist for the album just yet, but it will have ten tracks. It is Dylan’s first album since 2006’s Modern Times.
