Coming on March 31st will be Triplicate — Bob Dylan’s first triple-record set. The album, which follows Dylan’s 2016 Top 10 standards set, Fallen Angels, features “30 brand-new recordings of classic American tunes.” The collection is broken into three distinct albums — named ‘Til The Sun Goes Down; Devil Dolls; and ‘Comin Home Late. Among the evergreens covered by Dylan this time around are “As Time Goes By,” “The Best Is Yet To Come,” “Sentimental Journey,” “Stormy Weather,” “How Deep Is The Ocean,” and others. The set is once again produced under Dylan’s longtime alias, “Jack Frost.”
Bob Dylan’s Triplicate will be released digitally, as a “3-CD 8-Panel Digipak, a 3-LP vinyl set and a Deluxe Vinyl Limited Edition packaged in a numbered case.” The new track, “I Could Have Told You” is now available to buy and stream digitally.
A while back, Bob Dylan spoke candidly about who he is beyond the music: “I can’t describe myself in one or two words, considering the fact that I’ve written over 300 and 400 songs that do describe me. I gotta let those people speak for me. If you wanna find out what I’m like, you usually have to ask other people. Usually you can find out better from someone who don’t know me. I think it’s wrong for a person to talk about themself (sic). People. . . a person’s life speaks for itself. Y’know, if you’ve done good things, people will spread the news. And if you’ve done bad things, people will spread the news, too.”
Bob Dylan will next perform on March 1st and 2nd in Stockholm, Sweden.
