Bob Dylan Recording New Album


The guy just won’t quit. Now 70 years old, singer-songwriter/game-changer/American icon Bob Dylan is in the process of putting together his 35th studio album, the follow-up to 2009’s Christmas in the Heart. No title or release date yet, but according to an interview Los Lobos’s David Hidalgo did with the Aspen Times, Dylan has been working in Jackson Browne’s Los Angeles studio on material that “could have a Mexican-influenced sound.” Historically, septuagenarians haven’t been in tip-top form on studio efforts, sure, but it’s important to remember that Dylan released Modern Times, an album considered by many fans and critics alike to be one of his best ever, under six years ago, and put together a very solid moment, “The Love That Faded,” on last year’s The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams tribute. With that said, our hopes are high for this new album, whenever it drops.
