Dylan wrote a moving tribute to the late Little Richard in May following the rock legend's death.
Bob Dylan has shared the track list for his upcoming album, Rough and Rowdy Ways, with his fans.
The new LP is the first album of original songs to be released since 2012's Tempest.
Set to drop on June 19th, Rough and Rowdy Ways comes after the release of three collections of standards: Shadows in the Night, Fallen Angels and Triplicate.
The track list was unveiled in a video on his Instagram account last night, and includes previously released singles 'False Prophet', 'I Contain Multitudes' and the 17-minute 'Murder Most Foul.'
The length song circles around the assassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy on November 22, 1963, and contemplates fear, frustration, rage, sadness, and hope all at once.
The album title is taken from the 1960 Jimmie Rodgers song, 'My Rough and Rowdy Ways'.
Dylan US summer tour was scheduled to kick off last week, but in May he announced it was canceled “in the interest of public health and safety.”
“We hope to be back out on the road at the earliest possible time once we are confident that it is safe for both fans and concert staff,” he wrote.
