Bob Dyan Set To Release New Album

It's one American icon taking on another, as songwriting legend Bob Dylan has released a cover version of Frank Sinatra's 1945 song, "Full Moon and Empty Arms," which is slated for an upcoming full-length album.

"This track is definitely from a forthcoming album due later on this year," is all a Dylan spokesperson told Rolling Stone about the song, which was posted on Dylan's official website. There is still no title or release date for the record, which would be his first since 2012 full-length, Tempest.

Dylan posted an image of himself with the phrase "Shadows in the Night."

Rolling Stone speculated that the image may be an indication of a jazz-influenced album.

“With its distinct vertical bars and crisp, minimalist text, the image appears to be in the style of graphic designer Reid Miles’ iconographic covers for jazz label Blue Note,” writer Andy Greene noted.

Dylan doesn't stray too far from Sinatra's original track, though his version replaces the string section with guitars. "Full Moon and Empty Arms" was written by Ted Mossmann and Buddy Kaye and based around Sergei Rachmaninoff's 1901 composition "Piano Concert No. 2 in C Minor." The song has been covered by everyone from Robert Goulet to The Platters, but Sinatra's rendition remains the most famous. Dylan's last few albums were strongly inspired by popular music from this era.

Bob Dylan still has a great amount of influence in the musical world.  After Tempest was released in 2012, a group of artists including Reggie Watts and Built to Spill came together to record Bob Dylan in the ’80s: Volume One, cover songs from a period once considered a low point for Dylan musically.

Bob Dylan kicks off a European leg of his Never Ending Tour June 16th in Cork, Ireland. It runs through July 17th in Pori, Finland.

Where God is made absent due to human exclusion, the Enemy seeks to fill the void

In his very first homily at the Missa Pro Ecclesia in the Sistine Chapel, Pope Francis quoted the famous words of Leon Bloy, stating “Whoever does not pray to God, prays to the devil.” Nature abhors a vacuum. Our experience of the material world tells us that things tend to occupy vacancies; substances naturally move into areas of lower pressure, with less competition for space and survival. The same is true with spiritual things. Where God is ...

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
