On Bob Dylan's upcoming album Tempest, the theme seems to be "expect the unexpected." After learning that one of the tracks on Dylan's forthcoming 35th studio album is a 14-minute song about the Titanic (including a Leonardo DiCaprio name drop), today we're hearing the first rumblings of a new song, "Early Roman Kings." And it's coming to us via a two-minute trailer for Cinemax's drama "Strike Back."
Fans can hear the bluesy riffs of "Early Roman Kings" behind scenes of explosions, dramatic muffled whispers and a whole bunch of shootouts. Not exactly the way we imagined first hearing new Bob Dylan music, but he's not exactly the most traditional artist: Dylan recently told Rolling Stone that Tempest is an "anything goes [album], and you just gotta believe it will make sense."
