Bob Dylan Planning New Album For 2015
Next week (Nov. 4) Bob Dylan is unleashing a massive box set of vintage material from the famed ‘Basement Tapes’ sessions of 1967 — and with that out of the way, the rock and roll legend has an album of brand new material ready to roll out in 2015.
The announcement of this new album actually comes from within the ‘Basement Tapes’ box set. A note inside the six-disc set reads, “‘Bob Dylan, Shadows In the Night,’ New album coming in 2015.” There is currently no other mention of it on his website, but last spring, he teased fans with a picture of himself and the word ‘Shadows In the Night.’
Though ‘Shadows’ will be Dylan’s first album of new material since ‘Tempest’ in 2012, he did release a cover of the Frank Sinatra staple ‘Full Moon and Empty Arms’ this past spring via his website. At the time, a spokesperson for Dylan told Rolling Stone that it was “definitely from a forthcoming album due later on this year,” which led many to speculate that ‘Shadows In the Night’ would be an album of cover songs.
