Bob Dylan has released a version of Full Moon and Empty Arms, a hit for Frank Sinatra in 1945, which will appear on his new album to be released later this year.
One American music legend gives props to another American music legend in a delightfully surprising turn by erstwhile folkie Bob Dylan, who turns his crackling pipes to a near-forgotten hit from almost half a century ago by the late Ol' Blue Eyes.
The song, posted on Dylan’s official website, was written by Buddy Kaye and Ted Mossman and is based on Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Artists ranging from Sarah Vaughan to the Platters have also covered the song in the past.
Rolling Stone magazine quoted a spokesperson for Dylan as saying: “This track is definitely from a forthcoming album due later on this year.”
No title was given for the album but the website’s home page cryptically featured a picture of Dylan and the words Shadows in the Night, which has pundits speculating that it’s highly possible it will be the title for album No. 36.
Dylan’s last album Tempest, his 35th, was a commercial and critical success when it was released in 2012. The 72-year-old has just completed a string of dates in Japan and Hawaii as part of his Never Ending Tour – which began in June 1988 – and will start a European leg in Cork, Ireland, on June 16. – Reuters
