Bob Dylan will release Rough and Rowdy Ways on June 19, his first album of original material in eight years.

It’s also the first full-length collection for Dylan since 2016, the year he became the only songwriter to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature.

The album’s 10 tracks include the three new songs released this spring: “I Contain Multitudes,” “Murder Most Foul” and “False Prophet.”

Rough and Rowdy Ways can pre-ordered now.

The album will be available as a 2-disc CD, a 2-LP gatefold vinyl and in digital format.

Dylan is also pitching his Rolling Thunder Apparel Collection, check it out here. 

Dylan managed to get in a series of U.S. performances prior to the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic, but was forced to cancel his shows in Japan.
