Bob Dylan isn’t known as a crooner, but that hasn’t stopped the legendary singer/songwriter from releasing a cover of Frank Sinatra‘s 1946 single “Full Moon and Empty Arms,” which is apparently is the first song from a brand-new Dylan album.

Dylan posted the track to his official website on Tuesday, together with what appears to be cover art for an album entitled Shadows in the Night.

A rep for Dylan confirmed to Rolling Stone that the song is “definitely from a forthcoming album due later on this year,” but wouldn’t confirm the album title.  No word either on whether or not the album will be a collection of other standards.

“Full Moon and Empty Arms” was written by Tin Pan Alley writers Buddy Kaye and Ted Mossman on a melody borrowed from Russian classical composer Sergei Rachmaninoff.

 

The new album, when it arrives, will be the follow-up to Dylan’s 2012 release Tempest.
