The 71-year old legend’s album sold well in Australia last week considering it was up against new rock from The Amity Affliction, dance from The Presents and country from Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson.

Dylan wrote every song on ‘Tempest’ except for the single ‘Duquesne Whistle’ which he co-wrote with Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter. Hunter first wrote with Dylan on Bob’s 1988 album ‘Down In The Groove’. He co-wrote all but one song on 2009’s ‘Together Through Life’.

Dylan will be back on tour from October 5 with Mark Knopfler starting in Winnipeg, Canada.

‘Together Through Life’, Dylan’s last album of original songs in 2009, reached no. 5 on the Australian chart. It has sold 302,000 copies to date in the USA.

Dylan’s last album was ‘Christmas Through The Heart’ also in 2009. It sold 358,000 in the USA.

Hitsdailydouble.com is forecasting that ‘Tempest’ should sell around 100,000 units this week in America which last week would have given it a number one debut on the Billboard chart. Bob will likely land at no. 2 behind Dave Matthews Band whose ‘Away From The World’ album looks like selling around 270,000 units.
