Bob Dylan Hints at Release of New Album with Frank Sinatra Cover
Bob Dylan has covered "Full Moon and Empty Arms," a song made famous by Frank Sinatra, ahead of the release of his 36th studio album.

As NME notes, the song was originally written by Ted Mossmann and Buddy Kaye and was based around Sergei Rachmaninoff's 1901 composition "Piano Concert No. 2 in C Minor." However, Sinatra's version remains the best known. The song can be streamed via Dylan's official website now.

There is no official confirmation of a new album though the artwork seen above was uploaded to Dylan's website overnight. It carries the title "Shadows in the Night." A spokesperson for the singer told Rolling Stone that "this track is definitely from a forthcoming album due later on this year." Dylan's last LP, "Tempest," was released in 2012.

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Elvis Costello, Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons and Jim James of My Morning Jacket are working with producer T Bone Burnett on an album based on long-lost Dylan lyrics.

The artists are creating music for two dozen unfinished Dylan songs in Los Angeles' Capitol Studios. "Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes" is set for release this autumn, alongside a documentary called "Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued," directed by Sam Jones. The lyrics come from Dylan's 1967 "Basement Tapes" sessions.
