Today, NPR Online is premiering the song Duquesne Whistle, the first single from the upcoming album. The song was recently described by the Los Angeles Times as, “the folky sound of old-time country blues guitar licks quietly unfurling before the full band explodes into a driving big-beat rhythm as rollicking as the train ride the song explores.”

The video for the song will premiere this Wednesday at the site of Britain’s The Guardian. The video was directed by Nash Edgerton, who also directed the clip for Beyond Here Lies Nothing from Dylan’s 2009 release, Together Through Life.

On Friday, August 31, fans who visit listentobobdylan.com will find a map of locations in the U.S. and nine other countries where selected songs from Tempest will be streamed to mobile devices. The tracks will be randomly streamed only when users are within the Tempest-tagged geographic areas, utilizing the free web-based Sound Graffiti app (which can be accessed directly through listentobobdylan.com). In addition to the U.S., other countries in which Sound Graffiti locations will be found include Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Fans who stream the song will also be given an opportunity to pre-order Tempest from iTunes while they listen.

Finally, Bob Dylan Tempest pop-up stores will open in three cities on Monday, September 10.

  • 819 Washington Street, New York, NY 10014
  • 7763 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90046
  • 47 Beak Street, London, W1F 9SE

In addition, the Dussmann Store in Berlin will be dedicated to the album, with special promotions starting on September 7.
