Bob Dylan’s next album of new studio recordings will be all covers of songs Frank Sinatra recorded, a source told Billboard.
Two days ago I broke the news that the album, titled Shadows In The Night, would be released during 2015.
The only other detail yet revealed about the album is that it will include Dylan’s cover of Frank Sinatra’s 1945 hit, “Full Moon and Empty Arms.” A source told that to Rolling Stone back in May of this year, when the album was scheduled for a 2014 release. The release date apparently changed when it was decided to release the Basement Tapes this year.
“Full Moon and Empty Arms”:
Now that we know the entire album will consist of songs associated with Sinatra, it’s near certain that “Stay With Me,” another song associated with Sinatra that Dylan is now using for an encore, will be on the album, although that has not been officially confirmed.
“Stay With Me” as performed at the Dolby Theater, October 26, 2014.
[I just published my rock ‘n’ roll novel, True Love Scars.” Rolling Stone has a great review of my book in a recent issue. Read it here. There’s info about True Love Scars here.]

Dylan is Dylan, no matter what he sings. I for one welcome anything Bob decides to record and release. My only regret is that they are waiting until 2015 to let us buy the music.
i hope he includes ‘you belong to me’ which he has on the Natural Born Killers soundtrack, i believe…frank and dino and everybody covered that one, too….
