There’s already plenty of “new” Bob Dylan releases at hand — a six-disc set of Basement Tapes recordings hits Nov. 4 and the star-studded Lost on the River collection drops Nov. 11 — but next year, it looks like we’re getting the real deal.
Stereogum reports a note inside The Basement Tapes Complete: The Bootleg Series Vol. 11 confirms new album news. The note simply reads, “Bob Dylan, Shadows In The Night, new album coming in 2015.”
Earlier in 2014, Dylan unveiled a cover of Frank Sinatra’s “Full Moon and Empty Arms.” A source confirms to Billboard that the new album consists entirely of Frank Sinatra covers.
This sneaky revelation method isn’t unlike what Sleater-Kinney did earlier this month, when they revealed their reformation by including a blank vinyl disc (boasting a new song) in their recently released box set.
