Bob Dylan has found a home with Cinemax, and in particular the cable network’s original series ‘Strike Back.’ As the singer leads up to his ‘Tempest‘ album next month, he’s been using the show as a sounding board for some of his new tracks.

Dylan recently allowed ‘Early Roman Kings‘ to preview during a trailer for the action series, and now a second song, ‘Scarlet Town,’ debuted during the closing credits of Friday’s (Aug. 17) episode.

The song itself takes on a darker tone, with banjo and other string instruments providing the tempo while Dylan’s gravelly voice serves up a bewitching tale.

The ‘Tempest’ album arrives in stores Sept. 11 and is currently available in a number of formats and bundle packages here.

Dylan will venture out on the road this fall, playing shows with Dire Straits singer Mark Knopfler. The trek launches Oct. 5 in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
