Tempest is Dylan’s 35th studio album and it pays homage to the Beatles and John Lennon with song such as “Roll on John” that the artist has written quote lines from songs such as “Come Together,” A Day in the Life,” and, appropriate for our present time and place in history, “I Heard the News Today, Oh Boy.”
