Bob Dylan: New Album

Bob Dylan: Together Through Life Set For April 28 Release on Columbia

Columbia Records announced today the title and release date for Bob Dylan‘s 46th album. Set to hit ears on April 28, Together Through Life is the follow-up to 2006’s Grammy winning, platinum-selling Modern Times.

The album was produced by Jack Frost and is said to have been sparked by the creation of “Life Is Hard” which Dylan wrote for an upcoming film by French director Oliver Dahan.

For some cool insight into the album, check out Dylan’s recent conversation with Bill Flanagan here.

It was also announced earlier today that Zimmy (you know his name is Robert Zimmerman right?) will be headlining Rothbury. For complete Dylan tour dates go here.

It’s really hard to pin down a single attribute that makes Dylan the super-legend he is. It of course starts with his over-the-top-genius songwriting, but it also has to do with his productivity. He’s about to release his 46th album. His arsenal of material is so massive it’s hard to comprehend how one man alone could have created it. We were reminded of this once again as we were listening to his last release Tell Tale Signs: The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 (released 10/07/2008). There are a number of lesser-known gems to be found.
