Bob Dylan Surprises fans With Frank Sinatra Cover



Folk legend Bob Dylan has released a cover of Frank Sinatra’s song Full Moon and Empty Arms.

The music veteran has now followed the footsteps of performers like Beyoncé and has released his own version of the 1945 classic on his website without any warning and announcement.

Dylan’s representative told Rolling Stone on Tuesday, May 13 that fans can expect more of the same from Bob. The track released is “definitely from a forthcoming album due later on this year (14),” he said.

Dylan’s version doesn’t stray too far from Sinatra’s original song, though his version replaces the string section with guitars.

Full Moon and Empty Arms” was written by Ted Mossmann and Buddy Kaye and based around Sergei Rachmaninoff’s 1901 composition “Piano Concert No. 2 in C Minor.”

The song has been covered by many singers from Robert Goulet to The Platters, but Sinatra’s version remains, however, the most famous. Dylan’s last few albums were inspired and influenced by popular music from this era.

The music legend also posted a picture of himself with a caption “Shadows in the Night” across it. It was only a hint at what might be the title of his newest album.

Dylan’s last album, Tempest, was released in 2012.

He kicks off the European leg of his Never Ending Tour in Ireland on June 16.
