Bob Dylan Covers Frank Sinatra's 'Full Moon And Empty Arms'
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.14.2014



Rolling Stone reports that Bob Dylan has released a cover of Frank Sinatra's 1945 song "Full Moon and Empty Arms" on his website. It's believed that this is the first song from a new album.

A spokesperson said: "This track is definitely from a forthcoming album due later on this year."

The album title hasn't been confirmed, but Dylan did post a photo of himself with the phrase "Shadows in the Night". It looks similar to the style of graphic designer Reid Miles' covers for label Blue Note, which deals primarily in jazz albums.

Dylan's version of the song replaces the string section with guitars. The original was written by Ted Mossmann and Buddy Kaye, based on Sergei Rachmaninoff's 1901 composition "Piano Concert No. 2 in C Minor." It has been covered by acts like Robert Goulet and The Platters, but Sinatra's version is still the most popular. Dylan's last few albums have been inspired by music from Sinatra's era.

Dylan's last album was Tempest in 2012, but several names (including Reggie Watts, Built to Spill and Elvis Perkins) recorded a cover album called Bob Dylan in the '80s: Volume One. Dylan will begin his European tour (part of his Never Ending Tour) on June 16 in Cork, Ireland. The European run finishes up on July 17 in Pori, Finland.

You can stream his cover of the Sinatra song here.
