Bob Dylan has released his second new song in just weeks. ‘I Contain Multitudes’ has just popped out without notice and without any information.
Like the previous song ‘Murder Most Foul’ this one also features cultural references like Anne Frank, Indiana Jones and the Rolling Stones.
“I’m just like Anne Frank, like Indiana Jones
And them British bad boys, the Rolling Stones
I go right to the edge, I go right to the end
I go right where all things lost are made good again
I sing the songs of experience like William Blake
I have no apologies to make
Everything flowing all at the same time
I live on a boulevard of crime
I drive fast cars, and I eat fast foods
I contain multitudes”

This is an unreleased song we recorded a while back that you might find interesting. Stay safe, stay observant and may God be with you”.
‘Murder Most Foul’ was Dylan’s first original music since 2012’s ‘Tempest’ album. Since ‘Tempest’ he was released the standards covers albums Shadows in the Night (2015), Fallen Angels (2016), and Triplicate (2017) as well as expanding his archives bootleg series.
