Bob Dylan Announces Another Frank Sinatra Tribute Album, Shares ‘Melancholy Mood’
Bob Dylan has announced he will release a second tribute album comprised of Frank Sinatra covers this spring.
Dylan first tackled originals and songs performed by Sinatra on last year’s Shadows in the Night. Its counterpart, Fallen Angels, is due out May 20 via Columbia. Today (April 7), the folk icon has unveiled the very first single, “Melancholy Mood,” which Sinatra recorded in 1939. Like Shadows in the Night, Dylan largely avoids taking any liberties with the source material and instead delivers a stripped-down, earnest tribute. Take a listen to Dylan’s rendition up above and then compare it to the original right here.
Fallen Angels’ cover art and track list can be found at the bottom of the page. Dylan will embark on a North American tour that kicks off with two shows on June 4 and 5 in Woodinville, Wash. He has more stops scheduled through the following month and will be joined by Mavis Staples for the run of dates. The full itinerary can be seen below, too:
