Triplicate is the 38th studio album by Bob Dylan, released by Columbia Records on March 31, 2017. Like Dylan's previous two studio albums, Triplicate features covers of classic American songs recorded live with his touring band and without the use of overdubs. The album is Dylan's first three-disc album, featuring thirty songs across its three discs, each individually titled and presented in a d 10-song sequence.
If you accept "Because he's Bob Dylan" as an answer to the question, "Why has Bob Dylan made a third album of cover songs from the '30s through '50s, and this time it's three records?," then his sentimental journey of the past few years makes a little more sense. And like those records, Triplicate finds Dylan a bit out of his element but every bit committed to the material. Dylan divides Triplicate's three discs into a trio of sections based on songs' themes, but really they all fall under the same umbrella.
Triplicate is the thirty-eighth studio album by Bob Dylan, to be officially released by Columbia Records on March 31, 2017. The album will feauture three seperate discs.

It's possible to read the title of Triplicate in two ways.
Bob Dylan's third album of standards is 'Triplicate. Robert Galbraith/ZUMA. Bob Dylan’s third foray into songs previously recorded by Frank Sinatra isn’t only the largest set of new recordings he’s ever released (three CDs, 30 songs), it’s also majestic in its own right. Dylan moves through this area – the region of Sinatra, and also of standards songwriters like Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Hoagy Carmichael, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein – as if it’s territory for him to chart and command.

Fans of Bob Dylan know they’re following a seasoned, knowledgeable time traveller. His is a restless, critical artistic mind that surveys his immediate surroundings and determines whether he’s going to engage with contemporary life head on or instead draw on historical precedents that might inform us now. Somehow, his records and their meaning seem eerily prescient. Since the early 1960s, Dylan has rumbled forth as the most intricate lyricist and boldest singer to compose original popular music. Moody and alluring, the album can be enjoyed by just about anyone, anywhere. But for a Dylan fan, it’s the next piece in the perplexing puzzle that is his recent discography. Released in 2001 on 9/11, "Love & Theft" (a genuine masterpiece) explored America’s history of cultural appropriation, racial exploitation and mechanical production and consumption after the Civil War.
