Bob Dylan Returns to Vienna with New Triple Album

The legend and Nobel laureate continues his never ending tour with his first triple album.

One of the most important and influential performers of the 20th century, Bob Dylan emerged from the 1960s American counterculture as one of its most dominant voices. His influence over the modern music scene and pop culture has been immense, leaving an indelible mark on folk and rock music that’s still felt today.

With a recent Nobel Prize Award in Literature (for commitment to expanding the arts with the use of language), most singer-songwriters would rest on their laurels; but Dylan refuses to withdraw into well-earned retirement. Driven by his dedication to reinterpreting and reinventing songs, Dylan’s talent and ability to move listeners throughout the generations becomes apparent through his poetic lyrics, his inspiring political commentary and his engaging performances.

Still going strong with his 1988 “Never Ending Tour,” Dylan has added some material to his repertoire, releasing his very first triple album Triplica , in March 2017. Compiled of 10-song sequences, the album is thematically arranged with compositions of well-known American songwriters such as Frank Sinatra, Irving Berlin, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, adapted according to Dylan using his decades of expertise as a singer, songwriter and bandleader. Using only a quintet, Dylan prioritizes vocals and harmony over grandeur throughout Triplica ’s carefully selected songs.
