Bob Dylan has unexpectedly released his first new music since 2012. A17-minute song about the assassination of John F Kennedy. It is a great song.

The Nobel Prize-winning artist, 78, shared the track called ‘Murder Most Foul’ with a short message to fans on Friday morning.

“Greetings to my fans and followers for all your support and loyalty across the years,” Dylan wrote on his official Twitter account. “This is an unreleased song we recorded a while back that you might find interesting. “tay safe, stay observant and may God be with you. Bob Dylan.”

It is not clear just how recently Dylan wrote the track, although many are suggesting that from the sound of his voice, it is a relatively recent

recording

The sprawling, piano-led song starts by recalling the infamous day in November 1963, on which the US president was shot dead while riding in a car through Dallas.

It goes on to reference other major events and figures of the 60s, from the Beatles to Woodstock.

It remains to be seen whether this new song will form part of a new album, or if it is just a standalone release. A new studio album would be the 39th of Dylan’s long and storied career, in which he established himself as one of the preeminent songwriters of Western culture.
