Listen: Bob Dylan releases 17-minute song about John F. Kennedy’s assassination

'Murder Most Foul' is Bob Dylan's first release in eight years

Bob Dylan has released a track for the first time in eight years — and it’s a song about the assassination of former U.S. president John F. Kennedy.

The track, titled “Murder Most Foul,” opens with the details of Kennedy’s assassination in 1963 during a tour in Dallas, Texas. “Twas a dark day in Dallas, November ’63/A day that will live on in infamy/President Kennedy was a-ridin’ high/Good day to be livin’ and a good day to die.”

Running nearly 17-minutes long, the track explores life in the ’60s before and after Kennedy’s assassination and the effect his death had on the U.S.
