.....Or that we would have heard some news about Dylan booking studio time somewhere..

It's super secret hopefully, just feels like a new album is coming.

anybody who had something negative to say about L&T or MT should be forced to listen to TTL for another year before getting blessed with another recording. it's under appreciated and under discussed anyway, so that should keep folks busy for awhile. let the new one go out early to the rest of us who are ready and deserving to hear it!

If my memory is correct no one knew about the sessions for recent albums until long after the fact. The people who work for Bob Dylan know how to keep a secret.

yeah, that lazy unoriginal bastard needs to impress us, we deserve it. just kidding. when i reach for Dylan those past years, I grab Together Through Life or Modern Times. excited to hear what he does next.

I just wanted to add... Dylan rocks.

MT , TTRH and CITH are all masterpieces .
TTL is another great album and i'll never understand what everybody has against it .

it's what keeps me coming back here most days, i must admit.
that first rumble of rumour; confirmation, speculation. i can't
wait for the next frenzied wave of feverish debate, with...
wait for it! an actual bob dylan album in its wake :)

i've seen 15 original studio albums appear since being a fan,
and always there's that sense of promise, of the possibility of
eternal music in my hands and ears. and expectingrain does,
i must say, considerably enhance the preliminaries

'Easter in the Heart' is on the way. Recorded with members of Metallica once they'd finished with Lou Reed.

Cheers, SLuggy

Easter In the Heart with Metallica.... nah! Not interested.


But with Ozzy? I think that could work.

I'm quite bored so why not start some outrageous rumor.

Bob Dylan is right now working in the studio placing the finishing touches on an upcoming album. It was recodred with Paul McCartney sharing songwriting credits. NME reporter who had a rare chance of listening to the bits says: "It's a life changing music. One of the track "Yesterday Is A Long Time Ago (But We Still Have One More Morning, so it's not that bad)" is tearjerking duet about love gone wrong".


That would be great but is not true.

I hope the next album is not based on the 12-bar blues. He has enough songs like that already...

I'de love to hear something more experimental. Not sure what exactly.

Or maybe an album with a different guest musician for each song? A duet with Taylor Swift perhaps? Dylan being the grandfather obviously....

Agreed.
I'm not sure about the duets, though. Dylan seems to be notoriously difficult in that regard. It's like trying to sing along with a jazz trumpet player.

If he did a duet I'd love it if he did one with B.B. King or somebody like that.

I'll help you this is the way: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5t1Drzjm3dc

Can you imagine voice of Dylan above that. Fennesz worked with David Sylvian on that album it is mesmerizing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROSbpno52Rs

With the years advancing, the last few albums of original songs following the same formula with diminishing returns, the last few years of live work doing the same and last album a generally unlistenable collection of Christmas tunes, there's not much reason to hope for the moon. Speaking of Christmas, I feel like little Natalie Wood in "Miracle on 34th Street" repeating "I believe, I believe, it's silly, but I believe." Get me a f*cking house Bob.

After a trilogy of self produced albums, all with a strong blues theme, he can either keep on going in the same direction and risk becoming predictable, or do what he's done for the rest of his career and change gear and direction. The question is does he still have the inspiration and desire to find and start something new? To be honest, considering his age it would be pretty amazing if he did. The third alternative is to stop making albums and possibly write volume 2 of Chronicles, which is what i suspect he's doing.

Personally I'd love him to bring in a producer who can contribute a new feel to his studio work. A 2012 version of what Lanois did for him in the 90's would be perfect. It's been almost a decade and a half since he worked with a producer and in that time production techniques and styles have changed. Just don't use auto tune, Bob.

He should do as Cash did on his late records, only that he did that already.... kind of.

He should do a blues album in the style of Blind Willie Johnson or Howling Wolf.
