Bob Dylan has a new album coming out and a U.S. tour to go along with it. Even better: national treasure Mavis Staples is his opening act.
According to BobDylan.com: "For every pair of tickets purchased, you will receive a redemption code to receive a Compact Disk of Bob Dylan’s forthcoming album “Fallen Angels.” (Not available for Indianapolis and Boston.)"
Word is that this is Part 2 of the Sinatra Project, i.e. no Dylan originals, all standards popularized by Frank Sinatra, to be released May 20, 2016.
I will listen to anything Dylan wants to record or perform live, but to be honest, would rather hear new originals or his old classics at this point. I've never been a big fan of Sinatra or the music associated with him. Well, we had to put up with "The Christian Period", so now we have to put up with "The Sinatra Period". Sometimes with a great artist you just have to shut up and go along for the ride and trust it will work out, even if it's a place you really don't want to go to. You're in it for the long haul - you have to trust it will end up somewhere cool.
