Columbia Gives Away 50,000 Bob Dylan Albums To… AARP Members


Sony Music recently partnered with the AARP to provide discounts on music.

Now 50,000 AARP members will receive Bob Dylan’s new album for free. Dylan’s Shadows in the Night is being released by Columbia, which is owned by Sony.

50,000 copies of Shadows in the Night will be randomly inserted into AARP The Magazine, the magazine that AARP members receive. The Alliance for Audited Media says AARP’s magazine had 23 million readers in the first half of 2014.

AARP The Magazine also has an exclusive interview with Bob Dylan. This is Dylan’s first interview in almost three years.

    This will make the U2 fiasco look like a cake walk. It isn’t April 1st is it Paul?

      You have to love that they’re giving away a CD and not a download to the over 55 crowd. My turn to call out GGG, who I’m sure will have a field day with this………

        I just hope more of them end up in the hands of people that grew up listening to Dylan as opposed to Sinatra, otherwise the latter are in for a surprise….
