Bob Dylan‘s upcoming covers disc Shadows In The Night is officially slated for a 2015 release, according to an ad inserted into advance copies of Dylan’s new The Basement Tapes Complete box set. News of the LP first came in May when Dylan posted a cover of Frank Sinatra’s 1945 hit “Full Moon and Empty Arms.” “The track is definitely from a forthcoming album due later on this year,” a spokesperson for Dylan told Rolling Stone at the time – though the timeline has obviously shifted since then.
It’s unclear what other songs will be on the collection, though this week Dylan began ending his live set with “Stay With Me,” a track that Sinatra turned into a hit in 1964. Shadows In The Night will be Dylan’s first release since 2012’s Tempest and his first non-Christmas covers disc since 1993’s World Gone Wrong.
Dylan resumed his Never Ending Tour earlier this month. He’s doing multiple nights at theaters across North America, though his set list rarely changes. The vast majority of the songs comes from his recent albums. “She Belongs To Me” is the only track of the night he performs from his 1960s catalog and “Tangled Up In Blue” and “Simple Twist of Fate” are the only other songs he plays that came out before 1997. He hasn’t played so few songs from the first decade of his career since his gospel shows of the late 1970s and early 1980s. The tour wraps up December 3rd at New York’s Beacon Theater.
