Bob Dylan has announced details of a new studio album, Fallen Angels, out on May 20th 2016.
Featuring twelve classic American songs written by some of music’s most acclaimed and influential songwriters, the album showcases Dylan’s unique and much-lauded talents as a vocalist, arranger and bandleader.
His return follows the UK No. 1 album Shadows In The Night, his 36th studio album released in 2015, which features Dylan’s covers of ten classic jazz and pop standards made famous by Frank Sinatra.
Bob Dylan is currently on a sixteen date Japanese tour, which includes eight nights at Tokyo’s Orchard Hall, finishing on April 28th. Last autumn the legendary singer-songwriter toured extensively in Europe, including an eight night sold out residency at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall.
Dylan has released his rendition of ‘Melancholy Mood’, originally written by Vick R Knight and Walter Schumann and recorded by Frank Sinatra in 1939 as the B-side to his first single, ‘From The Bottom Of My Heart’. Listen to it here.
