Bob Dylan Covers Frank Sinatra, Plots New Album

It may well be called 'Shadows In The Night'
'Shadows In The Night'

Bob Dylan has become increasingly entranced with pre-rock 'n' roll pop culture.

Sure, it's always been there in his music, but the past few years have found the legendary songwriter explore easy listening, swing and more in a far more rounded fashion.

Late last night (May 13th) Bob Dylan placed a new cover version online. Tackling 'Full Moon And Empty Arms' the singer doffed his cap to Frank Sinatra, who made the song famous.

Based on Rachmaninoff's 1901 composition 'Piano Concert No. 2 in C Minor' the lush, romantic track was composed by by Ted Mossmann and Buddy Kaye.

Check it out HERE.

Rolling Stone confirm that the track appears on new album 'Shadows In The Night', which boasts artwork echoing the classic Blue Note period.

No word on a release date as yet, with the latest leg of Bob Dylan's Neverending Tour opening in Cork on June 16th.
