Batten down the hatches, folks. We are on the verge of the release of a new Bob Dylan album. And while we wait with bated breath for the Sept 11th release of “Tempest,” Dylan and co. have been kind enough to debut the music video for “Duquesne Whistle.” The video is directed by Nash Edgerton and features a cameo by his brother, Joel. Enjoy…
UPDATE ALERT: Hardcore Dylan fans will want to hear the full album of “Tempest” that leaked out last night.
