Bob Dylan has announced the upcoming release of his brand new book, titled The Philosophy of Modern Song via Simon & Schuester on November 8, 2022.
According to a press release, Dylan has been writing the book since about 2010. It will be his first publication since the release of Chronicles Vol. 1, published in 2004, which won him a Nobel Prize for literature in 2016.
The Philosophy of Modern Song gives an in-depth exploration of Dylan’s songwriting process, through his analysis of the songs of iconic artists, such as Nina Simone, Elvis Costello, Hank Williams, Stephen Foster and many more, promising to be laugh-out-loud funny.
President of Simon & Schuester, Jonathan Karp says: “The publication of Bob Dylan’s kaleidoscopically brilliant work will be an international celebration of songs by one of the greatest artists of our time. The Philosophy of Modern Song could only have been written by Bob Dylan. His voice is unique, and his work conveys his deep appreciation and understanding of songs, the people who bring those songs to life, and what songs mean to all of us.”
