Bob Dylan has given us a sneak peak of his new upcoming album Rough and Rowdy Ways with the release of the 3rd song from the album, False Prophet. It’s been 8 years since Bob Dylan’s last album of original songs – 2012’s Tempest.

False Prophet is a perfect bluesy jam with lyrics like “I ain’t no false prophet / I just know what I know / I go where only the lonely can go.” Dylan has long rejected titles like prophet, even after winning the 2016 Nobel Prize in literature for “having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition”.


One positive thing that 2020 has given us is new music from legends like Bob Dylan. Look forward to the full release of Rough and Rowdy Ways on June 19th. Listen to False Prophet from the poet of rock and roll himself below.
