Bob Dylan announced his new book The Philosophy of Modern Song
Bob Dylan has announced a new book called The Philosophy of Modern Song. The release follows his 2004 book Chronicles: Volume One, and features over 60 essays Dylan wrote examining other artists' songs. A press release says he "analyzes what he calls the trap of easy rhymes, breaks down how the addition of a single syllable can diminish a song, and even explains how bluegrass relates to heavy metal.”
Jonathan Karp (president and CEO of publisher Simon & Schuster) shared a statement saying:
The Philosophy of Modern Song will be released on November 8. View the cover below.
