Bob Dylan will issue Shadows in the Night on February 3. It's up for pre-order at iTunes.
The album will include 10 songs made famous by Frank Sinatra.
"It was a real privilege to make this album," Dylan said. "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. That's the key to all these performances. We knew these songs extremely well. It was all done live. Maybe one or two takes. No overdubbing. No vocal booths. No headphones. No separate tracking, and, for the most part, mixed as it was recorded. I don't see myself as covering these songs in any way. They've been covered enough. Buried, as a matter a fact. What me and my band are basically doing is uncovering them. Lifting them out of the grave and bringing them into the light of day."

1. I'm a Fool to Want You
2. The Night We Called It a Day
