    History

    In late 1978, Dylan became a Christian. He soon began to write Christian-themed and explicitly Christian songs, which appeared on Slow Train Coming, Saved, and portions of Shot of Love. These songs were as deeply personal and packed with poetics as any Dylan had ever written, but the force of conviction and power of faith evident in these performances baffled segments of Dylan’s fanbase (just as Dylan’s “going electric” had alienated folk purists in 1965).

    Trouble No More will consist mostly of live recordings from this era, plus unreleased session demos and outtakes from recording sessions for the three studio albums he recorded on this period: Slow Train Coming (1979), Saved (1980) and Shot of Love (1981).

    On September 20, 2017, the song "When You Gonna Wake Up (Oslo, Norway - July 9, 1981)" was published on Dylan's VEVO YouTube. It is the first single to the forecoming The Bootleg Series Vol. 13: Trouble No More 1979–1981, set to be released on November 3, 2017, on an 8 CD Deluxe Edition.

    Deluxe Box Set

    The Deluxe 9 disc Box Set premieres 100 previously unreleased live and studio recordings, including 14 unreleased songs (with the exception of “Ye Shall Be Changed,” released in 1991 on The Bootleg Series, Vol. 1-3), a 120 page photo book and extensive liner notes. The box will consist of 8 CDs with over 8 hours of music, and a DVD with the documentary "Trouble No More: A Musical Film", directed by Jennifer Lebeau and Ron Kantor, with a running time of 58:56, a new feature-length cinematic presentation combining unreleased footage from Dylan’s 1980 tours with new material written by Luc Sante and performed by Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon, plus over 28 minutes of extras. The documentary has been selected to premiere at the prestigious 2017 New York Film Festival.

    Notes

    The deluxe box set includes a hardcover book featuring an introduction by Dylan scholar Ben Rollins with liner notes by Amanda Petrusich, Rob Bowman and Penn Jillette. Available exclusively on the deluxe box set is a DVD which includes “Trouble No More: A Musical Film,” a new feature-length cinematic presentation combining unreleased footage from Dylan’s 1980 tours with new material written by Luc Sante and performed by Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon. Directed by Jennifer Lebeau, “Trouble No More” has been selected to premiere at the prestigious 2017 New York Film Festival.
