Announcement on Friday? Itunes store updates on Fridays so it would make more sense than Thursday. Maybe I'm just being optimistic

Interesting info, thanks.

Let's review:

- three days seems short for full album sessions, covers and espcially originals, even for Dylan's standards.
- considering this, when's the last time an album of his did not come from one single session? (Nothing post 1988 comes to mind?)
- when's the last time he recorded a full album outside the US, if ever?
- flying in American personnel doesn't mean much. The band members live in different cities all over the US. So to round them up during a tour break to record, say, in L.A. might be logistally more challenging than to fly in an engineer or piano player from the US to Dublin.
- Filimg/recording a cover for a tribute or something sounds very plausible. Multiple songs might suggest that he did a bunch of them in one go - like he did at Ardent in (I believe) 1994, when he also spent several days just doing covers for tributes. Some of them remian uneleased to this day. They might also just have warmed up worth a bunch of songs before they did the one they came in for. (Considering that for all we know Dylan always records live, it would be difficult to make a distinction between a rehearsal and a recording.)
- Didn't he haave a session in Ireland after a 2005 tour as well, where he fly in an engineer from the US and in the end they only didn one cover which wasn't even used to for trubute album it was intended for?

Would Love to be proved wrong, but I wouldn't read too much into this.

A tribute project does seem the most likely scenario.

He spent that day while on the road in an old theatre for the Bennett tribute last year. Seems a similar scenario to this.

Leonard Cohen deserves a memorial tribute telecast, don't ya think? And 2017 Bob could do a dandy version of The Future...

Unless...

There's a new original album already in the can and they went in strictly to do video work on one or more songs. A fella can dream...

If you knew what you were recording as if maybe you had rehearsed what you were going to record on the road covers or originals you could record an album in three days couldnt you?

But the idea of Bob having cameras in those sessions makes you question the album idea.

It was even a push for Bob recording an album in three days in 1964, and that was just with guitar vocals and a four track. There's absolutely no way you could record an album in three days today. It'd take that long for the engineer to find the right drum sound.

I'm inclined to go with the promo video angle, mainly because of the presence of John Hillcoat, an experienced feature film and high-end music video maker. Can't imagine him being brought in for a tribute recording. Maybe, of course, I'm wrong. Having said that, my friend told me there were no fictionalised 'scenes' or whatever, just straight video recordings of Dylan and musicians performing the songs.

Just to say, isn't it possible that the album is in the can and Bob was doing a performance video to promote it?

That's very possible, but...why so many songs and why step in to instruct musicians on parts if they had already recorded an album? Mind still boggles. Hopefully, we will find out soon :-)

If I recall correctly Dylan stated that the arrangements for Modern Times were worked out on the road, at sound checks and in other locations. He has been rumoured to be recording/ or planning to record for some time. Perhaps these sessions were the culmination of various on the road rehearsals, the studio could have been recommended by an Irish muso, maybe the guy from the Pogues. Probably added material for a covers album, or the next BS release, which was filmed as part of the package. I doubt it is a tribute thing, the Tony Bennett number took less than an afternoon - 3 days studio time hints at something important.

Think he hired an old theatre for a few days in Poughkeepsie to work on the MT tracks before hitting the studio.

When did the Triplicate songs recorded? Seems Dylan had a recording session in december. Could he have been recording new originals in december and doing extra promo/dubs or a music video for this?

From a marketing stand it woul make sense to try to capitulate on the mainstream attention and raised public profile that Dylan has gotten from the Nobel award.

Triplicate was recorded in early 2016. Don't think there's any actual evidence he recorded anything in December.
