Columbia Records said today that Bob Dylan will release a new album of original songs, Tempest, on September 11. The ten-song album is produced by Jack Frost (Dylan’s nom de producer) and marks the singer’s 35th studio record.
The press release is scant on details. The Tempest, of course, is Shakespeare’s final play, and interpreted by many critics as a play in which the bard looks back on his work and bids farewell to his art.
Could this perhaps be Dylan’s swan song? What do you think, dear reader? Let us know in the comments section.
