Bob Dylan has shared his latest cover version with a rendition of Hoagy Carmichael’s ‘Stardust’.
Dylan is gearing up to release his latest album ‘Triplicate’ – a three-disc collection of 30 classic songs by American songwriters.
As well as Hoagy Carmichael and Frank Sinatra, ‘Triplicate’ will see Dylan tackling songs made famous by the likes of Charles Strouse, Lee Adams, Harold Hupfield, and Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh. You can listen to ‘Stardust’ below.
‘Stardust’ was written in 1927. A wealth of artists have covered the song, including Bing Crosby in 1931 and Michael Bublé, who recorded it for his album ‘Crazy Love’, released in 2009.
A new profile on the musician and Third Man Records founder describes his home in Nashville, including a three-lane bowling alley. In the outbuilding in which the alley is housed are a rack of balls for White’s friends.
The New Yorker‘s Alec Wilkinson writes that “each dedicated ball has a name tag, and some of the balls are painted fancifully—Bob Dylan’s has a portrait of John Wayne.”
Dylan will showcase songs from ‘Triplicate’ during his forthcoming UK and Ireland tour, which is set to kick off in May in Cardiff. See his full itinerary below.
