New Morning

30 Aug

Nestled into the 12-track New Morning release that marked Bob Dylan’s 11th studio album is a soft, bucolic, country track with the same title as the 1970 album. New Morning came out just four months after the release of Self Portrait which received a world of confused reviews. Dylan fans still argue about whether the album’s negative reception was correct. New Morning was definitely a warmer release and its simplicity was met with a sigh of relief from music writers and fans alike. Dylan is prolific…we all know that…and on this album is the example of true Dylan that I just love.

“New Morning” works well with today. I had my first class of the semester in the ground floor of my campus’ labyrinthine library. It’s a new morning and in only a few hours it will be another one. Please enjoy the music below and enjoy Dylan’s lyric. Here is a part I specifically like:

Can’t you hear that motor turning
Automobile coming into style
Coming down the road for a country mile or two ?
So happy just to see you smile
Underneath the sky of blue
On this new morning, new morning
On this new morning with you.
