From his new album, "Together through life" comes a brand new song Beyond here lies nothin'. (Link to Bobdylan.com; opens a zip file)
I know it seems impossible (or maybe it's the crappy speakers on my laptop), but the Croak here is heavier than on the last album. That's a good thing, of course. As is the crunchy guitar on the track. (Courtesy Mike Campbell, who plays with a certain buddy of Bob's..)
But it's the accordion in the song that really gets you. (A touch of J.J. Cale's "Sensitive kind"?) It's played by David Hidalgo* and it rocks.
The Telegraph has a blog on the song. The blog also links to an interview with Mr. Z on his website. Read the whole thing. He makes some great comments on politics, imagery in his music and even talks about James Dean's "Giant".
*True story: I was at a concert once and David Hidalgo came up and stood right next to me. I instantly went slack-jawed, tongue-tied and bug-eyed. I wasn't quick enough to get an autograph or a cellphone picture. They opened the set with a terrific "Bertha" that night.
