Bob Dylan Recording New Album at Capitol Records Studios

Bob Dylan is back in Studio B at Hollywood’s famed Capitol Studios recording the follow up to his critically acclaimed 2015 album, Shadows in the Night, engineer Al Schmitt told Billboard […]

Schmitt, who engineered the Shadows album as well, said that Dylan is once again covering standards (although it’s unknown if the selections are all songs that Frank Sinatra had previously recorded, as they were on Shadows).

Shadows in the Night was a great album, and Bob clearly loves this music, as he sang a lot of its songs in his recent performances. As much as I’d love to hear some new Dylan songs, I’d be delighted to have another album of standards. Word is that he recorded 23 songs for Shadows in the Night, and only released ten of them. Apparently, the next album won’t be those rejects, but I hope we’ll be able to hear them in a future release of Dylan’s Bootleg Series.
