Bob Dylan has announced details of a new album, ‘Triplicate’. As the name suggests, the album is a triple disc set – the very first of Dylan’s 50 year plus career. ‘Triplicate’ continues to mine the same vein of classic American standards as his previous two albums, 2016’s ‘Fallen Angels’ and 2015’s ‘Shadows In The Night’, making 2012’s ‘Tempest’ his only album of (mostly) original material released this decade.

‘Triplicate’s’ three discs are all given their own titles, suggesting that ‘Triplicate’ may be best viewed more as a collection of three individual, thematically separate albums than one single album spread over three discs.
Listen to the downtrodden, melancholic shuffle of ‘I Could Have Told You’ above. The song was first sung by Frank Sinatra and came out when Dylan was only 13, meaning that it certainly would have had a big impact on him as youngster.
‘Triplicate’ comes out on March 31st and will see release on the usual triple CD and vinyl formats, as well as a deluxe numbered triple LP in special packaging.
