About this deal

Think of it as a companion to Rough And Rowdy Ways, and that album’s ongoing tour: as if Dylan were reinventing those ‘Early Songs’ in the same silvery light, and getting them out of the way before he hits the road again to concentrate on his Latest Songs. Une forme d'épuration grâce à un retour à une orchestration très acoustique, de la musique sans rajout, le tout très intimiste. In addition to Dylan, who plays guitar and harmonica and sings, most of the song arrangements consist of two additional guitars, a bass and an accordion. Drawn from a 2021 live stream with Dylan revisiting his past through the prism of his current sound.

A soundtrack album, Shadow Kingdom, was released on June 2, 2023, [8] and the full-length film was released four days later as a rental and digital download. So a look back through the years bringing a relaxing reinterpretation of his past that is not better than the originals just different and for Dylan fans well worth a listen.I don't quite know what this album is about other than it was some project that Dylan worked on last year, and I don't know what the musical interlude between each song is about. Four selections turn up on both Shadow Kingdom and in recent live setlists – When I Paint My Masterpiece, Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I’ll Go Mine), I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight and To Be Alone With You. Shadow Kingdom presents Dylan performing revelatory 21st century versions of songs from his storied back catalog – including fan favorites like “Forever Young” and “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue,” and deep catalog gems like “Queen Jane Approximately” and “The Wicked Messenger.

Bauer also claimed that the album "stands as a good retort for all the naysayers who have argued, seemingly from day one, that Dylan can't sing. Willman also praised Dylan's vocal performances ("he hasn’t sounded better in decades") and compared the "surreality" of the film's fictional setting (the non-existent "Bon Bon Club" in Marseille, France) to locations in David Lynch's Twin Peaks.It has an interesting track list, Now do I hate it 'No' he's made worse studio albums but I certainly don't love or dig it as he's made studio albums on completely different levels. The Daily Telegraph 's Neil McCormick gave the album a five out of five star rating and wrote: "What an absolute joy it is, in which the grand old man of songcraft flips through his own back pages with genuine relish, a man in his 80’s revisiting the words of his firebrand youth and finding entirely new meanings there". The old songs and vintage effect might invoke a certain nostalgia, but the juke joint ambience is more Lynchian than neat historic reconstruction, and the songs sound little like they used to do.
