Is Bob Dylan feeling nostalgic these days? 

The iconic musician surprised fans today with a new track, a cover of a 1945 tune called "Full Moon and Empty Arms" made popular in '46 by Frank Sinatra. The song is a sleepy, electric guitar-driven ballad that finds Dylan's now trademark growl in fine form. There's annunciation and everything.

Check out the track here.  

Rolling Stone confirms the song comes from an untitled new studio album, due out later this year. Dylan spent March touring Japan and has a European jaunt lined up for June and July. 

Last fall, Dylan employed Danny Brown, Marc Maron and Drew Carey for an incredible, interactive music video for his 1965 classic "Like a Rolling Stone."
