Bob Dylan will release his next album 'Fallen Angels' on May 20 to fans who purchases tickets for his summer tour
Bob Dylan's 37th studio album 'Fallen Angels' will be released on May 20.
The 74-year-old singer revealed that fans will be able to get their hands on the LP when they buy tickets to his forthcoming North American summer tour, which he also announced will have Mavis Staples as the main support.
A statement posted on his Facebook page reads: "Bob Dylan and his Band are touring the U.S. in June and July with Mavis Staples. There will be pre-sale ticket offers for many dates on this tour for American Express cardholders, with no password needed. For every pair of tickets purchased, you will receive a redemption code to receive a Compact Disk of Bob Dylan's forthcoming album 'Fallen Angels'. Not available for Indianapolis and Boston (sic)"
'Fallen Angels' is the follow-up to his Frank Sinatra covers album 'Shadows in the Night', which he released in 2015.
Producer Al Schmitt - who also worked on 'Shadows in the Night' - previously revealed the pair had created a "fabulous" working atmosphere in the studio while making the new music.
He said: "It's going along great. He sounds great. His mood in the studio is fabulous. We're having a good time. We're like two old shoes together now, we're so comfortable with one another now."
Dylan's 27-date tour will kick off in June.
