#Dylan said he had planned to record his first religious album in years before heading into #JacksonBrowne’s L.A. studio with his touring band in early 2012. Instead, he kicked off the sixth decade of his career with ‘Tempest,’ a brutally intense record steeped in a specifically American strain of violence and tragedy. “Pay in Blood” is swaggering and murderous; over an ‘Exile’-era Stones-y riff, Dylan spews cruel venom: “I’ll drink my fill and sleep alone/I pay in blood but not my own.” He could be a slave owner, a gunslinger or a politician. “It’s called tradition,” Dylan told Rolling Stone, describing the album. “And that’s what I deal in.” Click through the link in our bio to check out our list of the 100 Greatest Bob Dylan Songs.
