Bob Dylan to Give Away 50, 000 Copies of his New Album to AARP Members

Bob Dylan 640x360

If you subscribe to the AARP magazine then you just might be one of the lucky people who will be getting a free copy of Bob Dylan’s new album. The musician insisted that 50, 000 free copies be distributed in random issues as a condition of granting it an interview.

The new album, “Shadows in the Night, ” is actually a collection of covers of other people’s songs. Last December Dylan said about it, “I don’t see myself as covering these songs in any way. They’ve been covered enough. Buried, as a matter a fact. What me and my band are basically doing is uncovering them. Lifting them out of the grave and bringing them into the light of day.”

In an acknowledgement that his fan base has aged and that he does not appeal to kids who only seems to listen to rasp these days, Dylan gave his only interview to promote the album to AARP and conditioned it on the distributing of the free CDs to promote it.

In the interview Dylan says, “If it was up to me, I’d give you the records for nothing and you give them to every [reader of your] magazine.”

“Shadows in the Night” comes out February 3rd.
