Earlier this year, Bob Dylan released his new album ‘Rough and Rowdy Ways’, described by NME as “arguably his grandest poetic statement yet”.

The review added: “[It’s] a record that aspires to be the musical equivalent of the Great American Novel. It would be foolish indeed to assume that ‘Rough And Rowdy Ways’ is Dylan’s last word, but it’s certainly a historic address.”

It was recently revealed that Bob Dylan has sold his entire songwriting catalogue to Universal Music in a deal reportedly worth $300 million (£225 million).
