Blood on the Tracks track listing

"Shelter from the Storm" is a song by Bob Dylan, released on his 15th studio album, Blood on the Tracks, in 1975. The song also appears on two live albums by Bob Dylan — Hard Rain (from a May 1976 performance) and At Budokan (recorded in February 1978). Along with "Tangled Up in Blue", "Shelter from the Storm" was one of two songs from Blood on the Tracks to be re-released on the compilation The Essential Bob Dylan.

The song has been covered by Manfred Mann's Earth Band, released on their 1996 studio album Soft Vengeance. Jimmy Lafave recorded the song on his 1992 live record Austin Skyline. The song has also been covered by jazz singer Cassandra Wilson on Belly of the Sun.

Soul Flower Union as 嵐からの隠れ家 (Arashi kara no Kakurega) covered the song on their 2002 studio album Love ± Zero.

In 2006, English singer-songwriter Steve Adey reinterpreted the song, slowing it down to a funeral pace. Adey's version made The Times top songs of 2006.[1]

An outtake of the song, from the same recording session that produced the album track, is featured in the soundtrack of the film Jerry Maguire (1996). Further appearances are in the Alias episode "Trust Me", the Criminal Minds episode "The Instincts", the FlashForward episode "Believe",[2] and the movies Warm Bodies and St. Vincent. The Criminal Minds episode also includes several notations about Dylan, and the quote "I think the truly natural things are dreams, which nature can't touch with decay" is read by the fictional character Spencer Reid (played by Matthew Gray Gubler).[3] The song also appeared in the Numb3rs second season finale, "Hot Shot".
