Bob Dylan confirms Record Store Day release

Bob Dylan has confirmed he will release a 7" single for Record Store Day 2013.

Last week, we reported rumours that Dylan was planning to release two tracks - "Wigwam" and "Thirsty Boots" - from the spring 1970 sessions for the Self Portrait album.

Dylan's record label, Columbia Records, have now confirmed the rumours are true, and the 7" single will be on sale in selected independent record shops for Record Store Day on April 20.

Yesterday, Bob Dylan announced a string of April 2013 shows in America. You can find the tour dates here.
