Bob Dylan has unveiled the video for his brand new single “Duquesne Whistle”.

Click above to watch the video, directed by Nash Edgerton and set on the streets of downtown Los Angeles. The promo features a number of appearances from the legendary singer songwriter, who is seen strolling through the city at night.

The song is the opening track of Dylan’s new studio album, Tempest. The LP is the 35th of Dylan’s career and will come out on September 10.

It contains a total of 10 tracks and has been produced by Dylan himself, although, as with his recent studio albums, the producer is named as Jack Frost.

Speaking to Rolling Stone he said that the 13-minute long title track references Leonardo DiCaprio. He said of the song, which is about the Titanic disaster and was inspired by the Carter Family’s folk song, ‘The Great Titanic’: “Yeah, Leo. I don’t think the song would be the same without him.”

The release of Tempest will coincide with the celebration of Dylan’s 50 years as a recording artist. He released his self-titled debut album back in March of 1962.

Dylan headlined the UK’s Hop Farm Festival earlier this summer and is expected to return for a full UK tour in 2013.
