Bob Dylan has revealed more information about his upcoming album Tempest, including cover art and the track listing. It’s his 35th studio album. 

The album contains 10 songs, including a John Lennon tribute entitled “Roll on John,” which quotes lines from multiple Beatles songs, including “Come together right now” from “Come Together” and “I heard the news today, oh boy” from “A Day in the Life.” The title track is a 14-minute epic about the sinking of the Titanic, which actually refers to a scene from James Cameron’s 1997 film Titanic at one point. The chorus of another standout track, “Pay in Blood,” includes the line, “I’ll pay in blood, but not my own.” 

Tempest arrives in stores on September 11th, 11 years to the day after the release of Dylan’s 2001, LP Love and Theft.  

Here is the full track listing for Tempest:

“Duquesne Whistle”
“Soon After Midnight”
