Dylan is recording his first album of new songs in five years. According to reports, he spent four days last week rehearsing the material with an unspecified band, prior to entering a studio this week.
...Dylan and five unnamed musicians rehearsed the new material from Tuesday to Friday (January 31-February 3) last week behind closed doors at the Bardavon Opera House in Poughkeepsie, New York, reports the local paper The Poughkeepsie Journal.
"It was experimental, all kinds of different licks," according to the venue's executive director Chris Silva, who watched the sessions. "They would get into one thing and they would go over it and over it, then they would change gears."
It's always promising when you hear the word experimental associated with an Advanced artist.
