Later this month Bob Dylan will release his 33rd studio disc, and based on our early listen, it's going to be stunning. On this edition of All Songs Considered we've got a preview of the new Dylan record, Together Through Life, with the song "Beyond Here Lies Nothing." Also on the program: a new, self-released single from Sam Phillips, singer Jill Sobule, Malian duo Amadou and Mariam, solo music from The Knife's Karin Dreijer Andersson, a collaboration between Orenda Fink and Scaleplist, and an exclusive live cut from Grizzly Bear's recent South by Southwest performance.
