Bob Dylan is set to release a download only single.
Having seen his song ‘Love Sick’ recently find its way into the White Stripes’ Hammersmith Apollo set (November 6), the influential troubadour is making three previously unreleased recordings available.
The new versions were considered for inclusion for the soundtrack of the recent Martin Scorsese documentary ‘No Direction Home’, and will now be released via legal download services from November 14.
The three tracks are:
‘Baby Please Don’t Go’ – Recorded on 25th April, 1962
‘Mr. Tambourine Man’ – Recorded on 26th July-64
‘Outlaw Blues’ – recorded on 16th January 1965
‘Baby Please Don’t Go’, a Big Joe Turner cover, was recorded during the sessions for ‘The Freewheelin Bob Dylan’, ‘Mr Tambourine Man’ is from the 1963 Newport Folk Festival, while ‘Outlaw Blues’ from the ‘Bringing It All Back Home’ sessions features an extra verse.
Meanwhile Dylan begins a sold UK tour next week, kicking off at Nottingham Area on November 15.
