Bob Dylan Covers Frank Sinatra's 'All The Way': Listen

Bob Dylan is no stranger to covering Frank Sinatra, having lent his raspy voice to Shadows in the Night, an entire album of Sinatra classics performed by Dylan in 2015. And the folk hero's penchant for reinterpreting the back catalogue of ole' blue eyes is still a point of intrigue, as he's releasing another cover album this year called Fallen Angels

Above, Dylan shares the first single from Fallen Angels, a rendition of "All The Way." Drenched in country-twang, it's a pretty steep departure from Sinatra's smooth-laced original. Listen above. 

On the performative front, it was recently announced that Dylan would be joining his contemporaries from the classic rock world as part of a new festival produced by Coachella organizers Goldenvoice and AEG. The yet-unnamed festival is set to take place in October, and will see the "Tangled Up In Blue" singer perform among The Rolling StonesThe WhoPaul McCartneyPink Floyd and Neil Young

There's also Dylan Fest—a tribute festival held in Dylan's honor—set to take place in Nashville next month. Kurt Vile, Boz Scaggs, Kacey Musgraves, Emmy Lou Harris and Kesha will all pay their respects to Dylan at The Ryman Auditorium on May 23 and 24.
