BOB DYLAN: SHADOWS IN THE NIGHT (2015)
Shadows in the Night is the thirty-sixth studio album by Bob Dylan, released by Columbia Records on February 3, 2015. The album consists of covers of traditional pop standards made famous by Frank Sinatra, chosen by Dylan.
Speaking of his intention behind the album, Dylan stated:
I don't see myself as covering these songs in any way. They've been covered enough. Buried, as a matter a fact. What me and my band are basically doing is uncovering them. Lifting them out of the grave and bringing them into the light of day.
The album has received universal acclaim from critics for its unexpected and strong song selection and for the strength of Dylan and his band's performance and arrangements. The album debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, making Dylan the oldest male solo artist to chart at number one in the UK.
