New Dylan music is always a good thing, and if this latest record sounds anything like the "raw country tunes" and "seductive border-cafe feel" that David Fricke describes, then I'm even more thrilled. As of yet untitled, Dylan's 32nd studio album is scheduled to appear in late April.
Apparently the songs came out of a session he did to work on a song for "My Own Love Song," a movie starring Renée Zellweger and Forest Whitaker (strange pairing).
I think this album will close out the trilogy that started with Love & Theft and Modern Times, leaving Time Out Of Mind as sort of the loner record that it sounds like. A new tour can't be far off.
