New Bob Dylan album to be released in September

  • Bob Dylan is to release a new studio album, titled Tempest, on September 11th to mark the 50th anniversary of his debut album.

    The folk singer-songwriter's album will feature 10 new and original songs and is the 35th studio set from Dylan.

    His last album in 2009, Together Through Life, sold more than a million copies and debuted at number one in both Britain and the United States.

    The 71-year-old’s self-titled debut was released in March, 1962 but initially did not sell well.

    It was his second album, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, released in 1963, that established him as a poetic lyricist of protest songs.
