The album art looks amateurish.

Anyone know which is the Titanic song?

Also, it's being released on September 11th, which gives a new ending to the short film I'm working on.

Do we think the title track is the rumored Titanic song? Do you think Roll On John is the '60s number?

Edit: Found it - never mind.

I think Soon After Midnight will be Titanic song

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW BOB DYLAN ALBUM – TEMPEST - SET FOR SEPTEMBER RELEASE

COLLECTION OF TEN NEW BOB DYLAN SONGS
MARKS MUSICIAN’S 50TH ANNIVERSARY AS A RECORDING ARTIST

Columbia Records announced today that Bob Dylan’s new studio album, Tempest, will be released on September 11, 2012. Featuring ten new and original Bob Dylan songs, the release of Tempest coincides with the 50th Anniversary of the artist’s eponymous debut album, which was released by Columbia in 1962.

Tempest is available for pre-order now on iTunes and Amazon. The new album, produced by Jack Frost, is the 35thth studio set from Bob Dylan, and follows 2009’s worldwide best-seller, Together Through Life.

Bob Dylan’s four previous studio albums have been universally hailed as among the best of his storied career, achieving new levels of commercial success and critical acclaim for the artist. The Platinum-selling Time Out Of Mind from 1997 earned multiple Grammy Awards, including Album Of The Year, while “Love and Theft” continued Dylan’s Platinum streak and earned several Grammy nominations and a statue for Best Contemporary Folk album.

Modern Times, released in 2006, became one of the artist’s most popular albums, selling more than 2.5 million copies worldwide and earning Dylan two more Grammys. Together Through Life became the artist’s first album to debut at #1 in both the U.S. and the UK, as well as in five other countries, on its way to surpassing sales of one million copies.

Those four releases fell within a 12-year creative span that also included the recording of an Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning composition, “Things Have Changed,” from the film Wonder Boys, in 2001; a worldwide best-selling memoir, Chronicles Vol. 1, which spent 19 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller List, in 2004, and a Martin Scorsese-directed documentary, No Direction Home, in 2005. Bob Dylan also released his first collection of holiday standards, Christmas In The Heart, in 2009, with all of the artist’s royalties from that album being donated to hunger charities around the world.

This year, Bob Dylan was the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest civilian honor. He was awarded a special Pulitzer Prize in 2008 for “his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power.” He was also the recipient of the French Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres in 1990, Sweden’s Polar Music Award in 2000 and several Doctorates including the University of St. Andrews and Princeton University as well as numerous other honors.

Tempest is available for pre-order now on iTunes and Amazon.

Will it be the same Roll On John he does on Folksinger's Choice do you think? Or a reworked version inspired by an old folk song, like Nettie Moore

Perhaps, since it has to play for 68 minutes. I'm fascinated by these song titles. When I read them it's like I've known them all along.

Early Roman Kings sounds the best. A rollicking slow waltz, in tex-mex style, that compares America to the fall of the Roman Empire.

I'm not drunk; I can't wait.

That is to say, the traditional song Bob covered in the early '60s.

Track listing from iTunes.

The press release says the album features "ten new and original Bob Dylan songs," so I doubt "Roll On John" is a straight cover.

From the official announcement: "Featuring ten new and original Bob Dylan songs"

Whatever happened to Scott Litt's rumored involvement?

I'm SOOOO excited about this!

Though, I'm currently visiting my brother and family, and no one understands why Uncle John (that would be me) is so excited about "The New Dylan Album." 8) :D :cry:

EDIT: I just informed my brother of this news. Now, he says that he likes 20 % of Bob's work--a larger percentage than he will accord to any other artist, save the sainted Laura Nyro (90 % in his book). Upon hearing the news, he muttered. . . . "Oh." And, looked at me pityingly.
