Recession special! To support the April 28 release of his new album, Together Through Life, Bob Dylan is offering fans the record's first track for free.

And what a freebie it is: "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" finds Dylan veering into smoky, blues-lounge territory, where his scratchily delivered lines about the fickleness of love are ornamented by accordion, horns, and a few sultry electric guitar licks.

In an interview posted to his site, Dylan has spoken openly about the influence of '50s-era Chess Records in his new music, and characterized the songs on the new album as having a "romantic edge." "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" certainly fits the mold.

The track is available from now until March 31 at midnight (EST) from bobdylan.com.
