It’s looking like Bob Dylan is prepping his first covers collection since 1993’s World Gone Wrong. Dylan posted a cover version of Frank Sinatra’s "Full Moon & Empty Hearts" on his official website (BobDylan.com) with what appears fro be the cover for a new album, apparently titled, Shadows In The Night. Noise 11 reported that Sinatra’s 1945 rendition of the song was the most successful of the tune, which was written by 1944 by Buddy Kaye and Ted Mossman and based on Rachmaninoff’s "Piano Concerto No. 2." There's been no tracklisting or formal announcement made for the new set.
A while back Bob Dylan discussed his fans adulation with the BBC and explained that his desire to perform has very little to do with filling some type of void in his personal life: "I got enough love around me, y'know? So I don't need no people's love. I don't need to go out and play to a crowd of 20, 30, 50,000 people for their love. Some performers have to, y'know? But I don't. I got enough love just in my immediate surroundings, so. . . It accounts for why a lot of entertainers do what they do, because they want the love of another group of people. And I don't do it for love. I do it, 'cause I can do it and I think I'm good at it, and that's all I do it for."
Bob Dylan will next perform on June 16th in Cork, Ireland.
