$ 34.98 


Collection of ten new Bob Dylan songs
marks musician's 50th Anniversary
as a recording artist

Columbia Records announced that Bob Dylan's new studio album, Tempest,
will be released in the U.S. on September 11, 2012. Featuring ten new and
original Bob Dylan songs, the release of Tempest coincides with the 50th
Anniversary of the artist's eponymous debut album, which was released by
Columbia in 1962.

The new album, produced by Jack Frost, is the 35th studio set from Bob
Dylan, and follows 2009's worldwide best-seller, Together Through Life. Bob
Dylan's four previous studio albums have been universally hailed as among the
best of his storied career, achieving new levels of commercial success and
critical acclaim for the artist. The Platinum-selling Time Out Of Mind from 1997
earned multiple Grammy Awards, including Album Of The Year, while ''Love
and Theft'' continued Dylan's Platinum streak and earned several Grammy
nominations and a statue for Best Contemporary Folk album.

Modern Times, released in 2006, became one of the artist's most popular
albums, selling more than 2.5 million copies worldwide and earning Dylan two
more Grammys. Together Through Life became the artist's first album to debut
at #1 in both the U.S. and the UK, as well as in five other countries, on its way
to surpassing sales of one million copies.

Those four releases fell within a 12-year creative span that also included the
recording of an Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning composition, ''Things
Have Changed,'' from the film Wonder Boys, in 2001; a worldwide bestselling
memoir, Chronicles Vol. 1, which spent 19 weeks on the New York
Times Best Seller List, in 2004, and a Martin Scorsese-directed documentary,
No Direction Home, in 2005. Bob Dylan also released his first collection of
holiday standards, Christmas In The Heart, in 2009, with all of the artist's
royalties from that album being donated to hunger charities around the world.

This year, Bob Dylan was the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom,
the country's highest civilian honor. He was awarded a special Pulitzer Prize
in 2008 for ''his profound impact on popular music and American culture,
marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power.'' He was also
the recipient of the French Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres in 1990,
Sweden's Polar Music Award in 2000 and several Doctorates including the
University of St. Andrews and Princeton University as well as numerous
other honors.
