Bob Dylan to Release New Album of Frank Sinatra Songs, ‘Shadows In the Night’
Bob Dylan will be giving us a new album in 2015, but instead of it being a collection of new material, the legendary singer-songwriter will be singing songs from the one and only, Frank Sinatra.
Entitled 'Shadows In the Night,' this marks the follow-up to Dylan's 2012 album, 'Tempest.' He will be producing it under his Jack Frost moniker.
“It was a real privilege to make this album," Dylan explains on his website. "I've wanted to do something like this for a long time but was never brave enough to approach 30-piece complicated arrangements and refine them down for a 5-piece band. That's the key to all these performances. We knew these songs extremely well. It was all done live. Maybe one or two takes. No overdubbing. No vocal booths. No headphones. No separate tracking, and, for the most part, mixed as it was recorded. I don't see myself as covering these songs in any way. They've been covered enough. Buried, as a matter a fact. What me and my band are basically doing is uncovering them. Lifting them out of the grave and bringing them into the light of day.”
'Shadows In the Night' will hit the streets on Feb. 3 via Columbia Records.
