The legendary singer-songwriter has not released an album of original material since 2012’s ‘Tempest’. In the interim, Dylan has released three albums of standards, ‘Triplicate’, ‘Fallen Angels’ and ‘Shadows of the Night’, leaning heavily on material associated with Frank Sinatra.
Dylan penned a heartfelt and rare tribute to the late Little Richard last month after the rock great’s passing, citing his influence on his career.
“He was my shining star and guiding light back when I was only a little boy,” Dylan said. “His was the original spirit that moved me to do everything I would do.”

1. I Contain Multitudes
