Bob Dylan’s new album comes out today and it has a 14 minute song 0n it commemorating an international tragedy. Could it be his last?

Bob Dylan’s new album Tempest is out today and it’s the 35th studio album of his career and this year he is also marking 50 years as a recording artist.

Tempest features 10 new songs, including one that marks the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking. The title track is a 14 minute song that pays tribute to the Titanic, those on it and the 1997 film of the same name. He also name checks Leonardo Dicaprio in the song. Not only does Dylan pay tribute to the Titanic and Leonardo DiCaprio, Tempest also features a song about John Lennon.

The songs on Tempest have been released in different ways, including two, Early Roman Kings and Scarlet Town that were featured on Strike Back which airs on Cinemax. He also released a video for Duquesne Whistle and last week, iTunes streamed the album in its entirety.

The name Dylan chose for this album is fueling speculation that Tempest will be his last because everything Dylan does has purpose and William Shakespeare’s last play was called The Tempest. Dylan’s management has said that no, he will continue to record and make new music.

Next month, Bob hits the road with Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits to tour behind Tempest. He makes a stop in St. Paul at the Xcel Energy Center November 7.
