Surprise! Here’s a New Bob Dylan Song: “Full Moon and Empty Arms”

Bob Dylan is still making music, which is pretty wild. What’s even more wild is that, after a string of sort of ho-hum releases, he seems to have found a twenty-first century groove as a wild, apocalyptic preacher man, writing and performing some good, strange, dark songs. 2012’s Tempest was long, rambling and frequently brilliant, and it reminded us that just because Dylan’s old (73 this month) doesn’t mean he’s lost whatever it is that makes him such a hypnotic, important artist. And now, he’s back with “Full Moon and Empty Arms,” a cover of an old Frank Sinatra staple that will evidently be featured on an upcoming release. It’s a surprisingly sweet, romantic little number that may hint at a gentler album than we’ve been getting from Mr. Dylan lately, but we don’t know much. The album doesn’t have an official title, though Rolling Stone speculates that it could be called Shadows In the Night
