Bob Dylan may be 72-years-old but that doesn’t mean he’s done with music. The legendary musician revealed that he has plans to release a new album sometime this year. He also released a cover of Frank Sinatra‘s “Full Moon and Empty Arms.”
Dylan has released over 30 albums in his lifetime, the latest being 2012′s Tempest, which was very well-received by the critics. Rolling Stone‘s Will Hermes praised Dylan saying that lyrically, the singer was “at the top of his game.”
Though Dylan didn’t reveal the title of the upcoming album, he posted an image on his website that hints the name could be Shadows in the Night. He also released a cover to Sinatra’s 1945 hit song “Full Moon and Empty Arms. Dylan’s version is faithful to Sinatra’s original track, though his rendition does replaces the string section with guitars. You can listen to the track on his website.
A spokesperson for the singer confirmed to Rolling Stone that “the track is definitely from a forthcoming album due later on this year.”
