Istinska legenda za života Robert Allen Zimmerman poznatiji kao Bob Dylan najavio je novi album Rough and Rowdy Way koji će biti objavljen 19. juna. Album će biti dostupan na tržištu kao dvostruki CD i dvostruki LP ali i u digitalnom formatu za download i streaming.

Ovo je prvi album Boba Dylana u posljednjih osam godina sa originalnim, autorskim pjesmama, nakon albuma Tempest objavljenog 2012. godine. U međuvremenu je objavio i tri albuma sa američkim klasicima Shadows in the Night (2015), Fallen Angels (2016) i Triplicate (2017).

Album Rough and Rowdy Ways je najavljen singlom False Prophet koji je objavljen prije nekoliko sati. Bob Dylan je jasno i jednostavno prvu pjesmu sa albuma najavio riječima: “Mnogo je lažnih proroka i u tome je nevolja. Ljudi kažu da znaju šta je ispravno i drugi ljudi ih slijede jer imaju neku vrstu karizme, a uvijek ima ljudi koji žele voditi. Ljudi žele lidere. I lažnih proroka će biti sve više i više.”

False Prophet

Another day that don't end
Another ship goin’ out
Another day of anger, bitterness, and doubt
I know how it happened
I saw it begin
I opened my heart to the world and the world came in

Hello Mary Lou
Hello Miss Pearl
My fleet-footed guides from the underworld
No stars in the sky shine brighter than you
You girls mean business and I do too

Well I'm the enemy of treason
Enemy of strife
Enemy of the unlived meaningless life
I ain't no false prophet
I just know what i know
I go where only the lonely can go

I'm first among equals
Second to none
Last of the best
You can bury the rest
Bury ’em naked with their silver and gold
Put them six feet under and pray for their souls

What are you lookin’ at
There's nothing to see
Just a cool breeze that's encircling me
Let's go for a walk in the garden
So far and so wide
We can sit in the shade by the fountain-side

I search the world over
For the Holy Grail
I sing songs of love
I sing songs of betrayal
Don't care what I drink
Don't care what i eat
I climbed the mountains of swords on my bare feet

You don't know me darlin’
You never would guess
I'm nothing like my ghostly appearance would suggest
I ain't no false prophet
I just said what I said
I'm just here to bring vengeance on somebody's head

Put out your hand
There's nothing to hold
Open your mouth
I'll stuff it with gold
Oh you poor devil look up if you will
The city of God is there on the hill

Hello stranger
A long goodbye
You ruled the land
But so do I
You lost your mule
You got a poison brain
I'll marry you to a ball and chain

You know darlin’
The kind of life that I live
When your smile meets my smile something's got to give
I ain't no false prophet
No I'm nobody's bride
Can't remember when I was born
And I forgot when I died
