Bob Dylan Records 14 Minute Song About Titanic

Much like Gordon Lightfoot in 1976 wrote a song about a boat that sunk, a century after the sinking of the RMS Titanic, Bob Dylan has written and recorded a 14 minute song about the doomed ocean liner. What. The. Hell. 

Singer/songwriter/legend Bob Dylan has a new album due out later this summer called Tempest and the title track is a 14 minute song about the sinking of the Titanic.

Bob was not inspired by the 3D re-release of the film this summer. Instead, he said he was inspired by a folk song called The Titanic by the Carter Family who were around in the 1930′s and 40′s. He said that he liked the melody of the song and was looking to do something with that, but wasn’t sure what to do with it.

Bob says he was thinking about the movie as he was writing the song, which is probably why Bob also sings about Leonardo DiCaprio in the track. Bob feels that the song and the movie wouldn’t “be the same without him.”

You can check out Tempest when it’s released September 11. Bob Dylan will be at the Xcel Energy Center November 7.
