Dylan also shared the retro album cover for Rough and Rowdy Ways, which shows what appears to be 1960s scene featuring a couple dancing together and a man staring into a jukebox in the background. 
In the caption the folk singer revealed the CD and digital formats will be available June 19 and the vinyl format will be coming July 2020.
The new album will include ten tracks with the 17-minute-long Murder Most Foul getting its own disc with the CD version. 
Since 2012's Tempest, Dylan followed up with three collections of standards: Shadows in the Night, Fallen Angels, and Triplicate. 
Rough and Rowdy Ways, likely named after the 1929 Jimmie Rodgers song My Rough and Rowdy Ways, will be Dylan's 39th studio album.
It comes 57 years after the Minnesota-born star's debut LP.
