Bob Dylan is back in the studio recording a second album of standards to followup his Shadows in the Night.
Billboard is reporting that they were told by engineer Al Schmitt that the singer is in Hollywood’s Studio B at Capitol Records putting down new tracks of old songs. No titles have been released so it isn’t known if he is once again concentrating on the Frank Sinatra songbook.
Schmitt told Billboard “He 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.”
Dylan is producing the album.
Shadows in the Night was Dylan’s 36th studio album and contained such classics as The Night We Called It a Day, Autumn Leaves, Some Enchanted Evening, What’ll I Do and That Lucky Old Sun. The album received five stars from Britain’s Guardian and Telegraph, four stars from Billboard and Rolling Stone, and had a score of 82 out of 100 at Metacritic.
