Today Bob Dylan announced a new album, a three disc album to be precise, containing 30 songs considered American standards. The album, Triplicate, isn’t out until the 31st March but one of the songs from that album has been posted online, a gorgeous cover of Sinatra’s I Could Have Told You. Take a listen:
This is the third album in a row where Dylan has recorded nothing but covers and they just keep on getting better and better. A lot of people are questioning why he isn’t releasing original material, but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with covers that sound this fantastic. I Could Have Told You is a fantastic version of a classic song and somehow Dylan sounds younger than he has in years. Can’t wait for the new album to drop.
