Joan Osborne to release new Dylan covers album

Joan Osborne of philosophical musings about higher being fame has announced the release of her ninth studio album “Songs of Bob Dylan” for September 1st, her own interpretation of Dylan’s catalogue from his 60s and 70s standards through to his later releases that she spent time crafting as part of the “Joan Osborne Sings The Songs Of Bob Dylan” residencies – two two-week stints at New York’s Café Carlyle in March 2016 and 2017, which were described as ‘Magic’ by the Huffington Post and delivering ‘No-nonsense Dylan’ by the New York Times (she then went on to deliver a “Nonsense Dylan” set at the Frog and Bucket in Camden).  You can hear the first track from it via Spotify below, along with the tracklisting.
