BOB DYLAN HAS unveiled a new cover of Frank Sinatra’s 1945 track, Full Moon And Empty Arms. The song – written by Buddy Kaye and Ted Mossman – began streaming over at bobdylan.com earlier. Sinatra died 16 years ago today, on May 14, 1998. A Dylan spokesperson told Rolling Stone that the song “is definitely from a forthcoming album due later on this year”. That album looks to be titled Shadows In The Night – check out the newly unveiled artwork here.
Dylan has been a lifelong Sinatra fan. For evidence of this, look no further than this video of Dylan’s moving tribute at Frank’s 80th birthday celebration in 1995.
It’s been two years since the release of Dylan’s last studio album, Tempest, although Bob heads can get a new fix of Dylan via the recently released tribute album, Bob Dylan in the '80s: Volume One.
