Folk rock legend Bob Dylan is releasing the 35th studio album in his 50-year recording career on Sept. 11, Columbia Records announced Tuesday.
Its release coincides with the 50th anniversary of Mr. Dylan’s eponymous debut album, also on Columbia Records, which featured a number of American folk standards as well as two original compositions.
Mr. Dylan, 71, has released four studio albums since 1997, most recently “Together Through Life” in 2009. He is on tour in France. Earlier this year, the singer received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, at the White House.
‘Nemo’ director Stanton signs on for sequel
Andrew Stanton is heading back to animation, signing on to direct a sequel to Pixar’s “Finding Nemo,” the 2003 modern classic he co-directed.
Victoria Strouse, who wrote “The Apostles of Infinite Love,” is writing the script. A 2016 release date is being eyed.
Mr. Stanton, who won acclaim for directing Pixar’s “Wall-E,” stumbled earlier this year with his first live-action effort, the box-office flop “John Carter.”
The former keyboardist and co-author of the band’s most famous hit, “Smoke on the Water,” was surrounded by family when he died at a London clinic after battling pancreatic cancer since August.
Members of the band were among a string of musicians who took to Twitter to pay their respects after news of Mr. Lord’s death. A comment posted by the band said: “God bless you Mr Jon Lord. Hasta siempre (long live) maestro Jon Lord.”
Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash wrote: “Sad day in rock’n’roll. Jon Lord has passed on. One of the biggest, baddest, heaviest sounds in heavy metal. One of a kind. RIP.”
A statement from his family on Mr. Lord’s website said he passed “from Darkness to Light” and was “surrounded by his loving family” when he died.View Entire Story
