First new material since 2006 coincides with UK live shows

As reported last week, Bob Dylan has readied an album of new material which is due for release on April 27, and Columbia records have now confirmed that it is to be called ‘Together Through Life’.

Dylan’s 46th release is his first studio album since 2006’s Modern Times and it’s making was prompted when he recorded a tarck “Life Is Hard” for the forthcoming film ‘My Own Love’, starring Renee Zellweger and Forest Whitaker.

In the run-up to ‘Together Through Life’s release, three exclusive ‘conversations between Bob Dylan and Bill Flanagan will be published at www.bobdylan.com, the first part is up to read now.

Speaking to Flanagan about the new album, comparing the new material to Modern Times, Dylan says: “I think we milked it all we could on that last record and then some. We squeezed the cow dry. All the Modern Times songs were written and performed in the widest range possible so they had a little bit of everything. These new songs have more of a romantic edge.”

Bob Dylan’s UK tour dates, starting next month, are as follows:

Sheffield Arena (April 24)

London O2 Arena (25)

Cardiff CIA (28)

Birmingham NIA (29)

Liverpool Echo Arena (May 1)

Glasgow SECC (2)

Edinburgh Playhouse (3)
