Bob Dylan’s Tempest: Full Track Listing Revealed, Including Tribute To John Lennon

Bob Dylan’s Tempest: Full Track Listing Revealed, Including Tribute To John Lennon
Allan Jones

Just a follow up to my post earlier this week about the new Bob Dylan album, around which a certain excitement seems to be accumulating. As I mentioned, the album features ten new Dylan songs that I can now give titles to, including “Roll On John”, the album’s closing track, a wistful tribute to John Lennon that quotes lines from several Beatles songs, including “Come Together” and “A Day In The Life”.

The album’s title track, meanwhile, is a 14-minute epic that revolves around the sinking of The Titanic, while the reflective mood of several other tracks, including stand-outs “Soon After Midnight”, “Long And Wasted Years” and “Pay in Blood” will no doubt recall for some the sombre cast of “Not Dark Yet”.

Anyway, here’s the full Tempest track listing:

1 “Duquesne Whistle”
2 “Soon After Midnight”
3 “Narrow Way”
4 “Long And Wasted Years”
5 “Pay In Blood”
6 “Scarlet Town”
7 “Early Roman Kings”
8 “Tin Angel”
9 “Tempest”
10 “Roll On John”
