Now 71 years young, Bob Dylan will reportedly release his 35th studio album as soon as September, according to the Dylan fan site Isis Magazine.

Isis reports that recording took place earlier this year with members of Dylan’s touring band and David Hidalgo, who “had been brought in primarily to play accordion and guitar… but ended up adding Mexican instruments.” The end result reportedly spans 10 tracks, including one about the Titanic that’s 14 minutes long. Another track is said to clock in at nine minutes.

Below, watch the video for “Beyond Here Lies Nothin'”, the lead single from Dylan’s 33rd album Together Through Life.

As Bob would tell you himself, he didn’t foretell on Love in Theft of the twin towers being taken down. He recorded an excellent album and its release date just happened to be on that terrible day. Like most of Bob’s albums, Love and Theft is underrated. Please, get real. One can interpret lyrics in a million ways. Bob is a genius, not a fortune teller. He is a great musician, not the messiah. No wonder the guy has complexes when it comes to being interviewed.

Who could forget awaiting Dylan’s new release over a decade ago.  That album was named “Love and Theft” and garnered Dylan a Grammy as best album of the year with Daniel Lanois on the production board (along with Jack Frost of course).  The release day was September 11, 2001 and I’d marked it in my calendar to run over to the HMV (His Majesty’s Voice) record store to buy it during my lunch hour.  Instead, the world was transfixed to the television as we watched in horror the events of 911, forever carved in our brains and hearts.  Wearily, after work was over, with much guilt I might add, I went to HMV and picked up the new album – was that a recent or catalogued photo of Bob on the cover? Who new?  Who cared?  I popped the anticipated CD into my player and sat back and listened to a masterpiece for the very first time.  Being in my early forties at the time, I was able to sit and listen to the music … so American … (“This is American Music!”) … line by line if at all possible and I’d skip back if the phrasing missed my ear.  A couple of the songs on that album; released that fateful day; gave me shivers … especially “Honest With Me” with the lines:
“I’m not sorry for nothing I’ve done. I’m glad I fought I only wish we won.  The Siamese Twins are coming to town.  People can’t wait to gather around.  When I left my home the sky split open wide.  I never wanted to go back there, I’d rather have died”; or  ”Some things are too terrible to be true.  I won’t come here no more if it bothers you. There’s a Southern Pacific leaving at 9:45.  I having a hard time believing some people were ever alive.  I’m stark naked but I don’t care.  I’m going off into the woods, I’m huntin’ bare (bear)”; or ”I’m here to create the new imperial empire.  I’m gon’ do whatever circumstances require”. Then on “Bye and Bye”.or ”The future for me is already a thing of the past”; or “I’m gonna baptize you in fire, so you can sin no more.””Lonesome Day Blues” laments “Well, today has been been a sad and lonesome day”, and;Well, my pa he died and left me, my brother got killed in the war”; and “Yeah, the road’s washed out, weather no fit for man or beast.  Funny the things you have the hardest time parting with are the things you need the least; and “I’m going to spare the defeated, boys, I’m going to speak to the crowd, I’m going to teach peace to the conquered, I’m going to tame the proud”. ”How about Floater (Too Much to Ask)”?”A summer breeze is blowin” is, in true Dylan character,spit out as ” Osama breeze is blowin’, a squall is setting in.  Sometimes it’s just plain stupid, to get into any kind of wind”;On “Sugar Baby”.  ”I’ve got my back, to the sun.  ’Cause the light is too intense”.No, Bob Dylan is not a fortune teller of doom, but you have to admit you can make some similarities to the lyrics released on September 11, 2001 and the terrible events of that day,

I remember that as well. I had already heard the album or parts of it in July actually. I had insiders who sent it to me in advance. I already knew it was an amazing disc. But the day of Sept 11 was an all around horrible day and I felt like crap already. I think my gf at the time picked the disc up for me since I was working. I went home and watched the news to see the towers falling and I was standing up looking at a little tv with my mouth literally wide open in shock. That was a terrible day, and I listened to the album in the car out of a sense of duty since I had just bought it…I didn’t even feel like listening to music. It just seemed so unimportant in comparison. But there were parts that he wrote about the airplane which seemed like he foretold the event in Summer Days. I am so glad that day is over. But fyi, Daniel Lanois didn’t have any part of Love and Theft. He produced Time Out Of Mind which came out in 1997.
