To coincide with the 50th anniversary of his first album, Bob Dylan will release a new album titled "Tempest". His label Columbia Records announced on Tuesday, July 17 that "Tempest" will be released on September 11 featuring 10 new songs.
The album, which would be the 35th studio set from Dylan, is reportedly "something you've never heard before from Bob," a source told Wall Street Journal. A song is called "Roll on John", said to be a tribute to late Beatle, John Lennon. There will also be a song about Titanic on the album, but title is not revealed.
"Tempest" was recorded in Los Angeles in the first quarter of this year with the help of his touring band and Los Lobos' David Hidalgo. Dylan, according to someone who knows him well, felt no urgency to release the album.
Dylan's very first album, a self-titled, was released on March 19, 1962. His last album 2009's "Together Through Life" sold more than a million copies and debuted at No. 1 in the U.S. as well as in the U.K.
