Tempest is the 35th studio album by American singer songwriter Bob Dylan, released in September 2012 via Columbia Records.

Tempest comprises 10 original songs written by Dylan, with the exception of “Duquesne Whistle” which he co-wrote with Robert Hunter of The Grateful Dead.

Five of the songs are more than seven minutes in duration with the title track clocking in at more than 13 minutes.

Tempest was released to acclaim from music critics, who praised its traditional music influences and Dylan's dark lyrics.

In Rolling Stone magazine, Will Hermes rated the album five out of five stars, calling it "musically varied and full of curveballs" and "the single darkest record in Dylan's catalog." According to Hermes, the album draws upon elements common throughout Dylan's career—especially the last three albums—with music that is "built from traditional forms and drawing on eternal themes: love, struggle, death." Hermes continues: “…Lyrically, Dylan is at the top of his game, joking around, dropping wordplay and allegories that evade pat readings and quoting other folks' words like a freestyle rapper on fire. "Narrow Way" is one of Dylan's most potent rockers in years, and it borrows a chorus from the Mississippi Sheiks' 1934 blues "You'll Work Down to Me Someday". "Scarlet Town" draws on verses by 19th-century Quaker poet and abolitionist John Greenleaf Whittier; and allusions to Louis Armstrong and the Isley Brothers pop up elsewhere….”

The album peaked at #3 on the US Billboard 200, #3 on the UK and #8 on the Australian albums charts.

This double album 2LP record set is on 180 gram black vinyl with a printed insert and CD album copy, pressed in Europe via Columbia Records.
