30 Brand-New Recordings of Classic American Tunes with Each of the Three LPs Individually Titled and Presented in a Thematically-Arranged 10-Song Sequence
Standard 180g 3LP-Set in 1/4" Spine Sleeve Jacket
Bob Dylan's newest musical endeavor is the three-disc studio album, Triplicate, featuring 30 brand-new recordings of classic American tunes and marking the first triple-length set of the artist's illustrious career. With each disc individually titled and presented in a thematically-arranged 10-song sequence, Triplicate showcases Dylan's unique and much-lauded talents as a vocalist, arranger and bandleader on 30 compositions by some of music's most lauded and influential songwriters. The Jack Frost-produced album is the 38th studio set from Bob Dylan and marks the first new music from the artist since Fallen Angels, which was released in early 2016. Triplicate is available in several configurations including this standard 180g 3LP-set in 1/4" spine sleeve jacket.
For Triplicate, Dylan assembled his touring band in Hollywood's Capitol studios to record hand-chosen songs from an array of American songwriters including Charles Strouse and Lee Adams ("Once Upon A Time"), Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler ("Stormy Weather"), Harold Hupfield ("As Time Goes By") and Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh ("The Best Is Yet To Come"). The titles of the individual LPs are ‘Til The Sun Goes Down, Devil Dolls and Comin' Home Late. Dylan notes, "I am finding these great songs to be a tremendous source of inspiration that has led me to one of my most satisfying periods in the studio. I've hit upon new ways to uncover and interpret these songs that are right in line with the best recordings of my own songs, and my band and I really seemed to hit our stride on every level with Triplicate."
The artist's two previous album of classic American songs, 2016's Fallen Angels and 2015's Shadows in the Night, were both critically acclaimed worldwide hits and garnered Grammy Award nominations in the category of Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. Fallen Angels achieved Top Ten debuts in more than a dozen countries while Shadows in the Night debuted in the Top 10 in seventeen countries.
