Because we’ve got a Blu-ray review coming very soon of the first season of the Cinemax action-thriller series Strike Back, it seems fitting to pass on a heads up to fans of the fast-paced action series and Bob Dylan. In what seems like an unlikely – albeit very cool – pairing, two songs from Dylan’s upcoming album, Tempest (due September 11), will be featured in the new season of Strike Back.

One of the songs, a bluesy shuffle called “Early Roman Kings,” made its world premiere August 1, on the official Cinemax website(along with lots of additional info about the series). The tune is set to a montage of footage from the new season. 

The other new Dylan song, “Scarlet Town,” will debut as the closing credits roll for the back-to-back first two episodes of Strike Back season two, Friday, August 17 (10:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT). Fear not if you miss the debut broadcast, the song will be heard at the end of both episodes when they are available from Max On Demand and Max GO.

The first season of Strike Back will be released on Blu-ray and DVD August 7. Our review of the Blu-ray will be available right here on Cinema Lowdown very soon!
