Bob Dylan has unveiled a new track from his album of songs associated with the legend that is Frank Sinatra, Shadows In The Night.
‘Stay With Me’, written by Carolyn Leigh and Jerome Moross, was originally recorded by Sinatra in December 1963, and was released as a single in January 1964.
Shadows In The Night, which is to be released on Columbia on 2nd February, is Dylan’s 36th studio album. Dylan was quoted saying:
“It was a real privilege to make this album, I’ve wanted to do something like this for a long time, but was never brave enough to approach 30-piece complicated arrangements and refine them down for a five-piece band.”
‘Stay With Me’ was the first and, so far, the only song from the album that Dylan has performed live. It became the set closer in the final months of his 2014 tour, following ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ in the encore.
Dylanologists are currently excited not just by the new album, but by a series of anniversaries – the past fortnight has seen the 50th anniversary of Subterranean Homesick Blues being recorded, and the 40th of the release of Blood On The Tracks – and by the news that Dylan is making a new video. An exciting year ahead for the folk legend it seems.
