Bob Dylan Working On Follow-up To Frank Sinatra Covers Album

In 2015, Bob Dylan released his 36th studio album Shadows In The Night, which featured jazz and pop standards made famous by Frank Sinatra.

It's now being reported that Dylan is recording at Hollywood's Capitol Studios, where Sinatra himself recorded.

Engineer Al Schmitt confirmed that Dylan is working on the follow-up to Shadows In The Night, although he didn't confirm whether the songs would again be Sinatra covers.

"It's going along great," Schmitt said. "Dylan sounds great. His mood in the studio is fabulous. We’re having a good time. We’re like two old shoes together now, we’re so comfortable with one another now."

Schmitt added of Dylan: "He’s extraordinarily smart and he’s so aware of everything that’s going on, so he knows what’s happening at every moment."

No further details of Dylan's plans have come to light.
