Bob Dylan: Modern Times

Dylan's album Modern Times is due out on 29 August 2006. Stand by your TVs, the previous Dylan album came out on September 11, 2001.

Meantime, we have the cover photo and title to mull over.

Modern times, eh?

Yeah, right.

The photo was, it turns out, shot in about 1947 by Ted Croner. Ted Croner obit (August 2005): Guardian
Ted Croner gallery and prints: Embrace your Space

The title? Was that inspired by Charlie Chaplin's timeless Modern Times (1936)? Almost certainly. Chaplin's film Modern Times: Amazon
