New Dylan Track Available As Free Download

Old-timey 'Po' Boy,' from upcoming Love and Theft, accessible until September 20.

“Po’ Boy,” a jazzy track from Bob Dylan’s upcoming album, Love and Theft, will be available online as a free download from WindowsMedia.com starting Monday (August 20).

The track will be available until September 20 at www.windowsmedia.com/previewv2/bobdylan.

The shuffling, old-timey song, propelled by layered acoustic guitars and gently brushed drums, finds Dylan indulging in lyrics distant in tone from his mortality-obsessed most recent album, 1997′s Time Out of Mind.

“I say, ‘Who is it, where ya from?’/ Man say, ‘Freddy’/ I say, ‘Freddy who?’/ He say, ‘Freddy or not, here I come,’” sings Dylan in the song’s final verse.

Love and Theft is due in stores September 11.
