Bob Dylan "Scarlet Town"

Bob Dylan 'Scarlet Town'
For whatever reason, Bob Dylan's Tempest album is getting all of its song premieres via the HBO action series Strike Back. After debuting "Early Roman Kings" in a trailer for the show, the song "Scarlet Town" was played at the end of an episode.

"Scarlet Town" is subtle and rootsy, with Dylan's gravelly voice channeling elements of Tom Waits. And while we've only got a minute-long taste of the track, it's hard to imagine it going in too many other directions. It's pretty settled into an acoustic groove.

Check out a snippet of "Scarlet Town" below.

Tempest will be available on September 11 via Columbia.
