Bob Dylan announces Frank Sinatra covers album

Bob Dylan has announced his 36th studio album, the follow up to 2012's "Tempest."

"Shadows in the Night," out Feb. 3 next year, is a collection of 10 Frank Sinatra covers, including "Full Moons and Empty Arms" and "Some Enchanted Evening." 

Dylan said of the album:

"I don't see myself as covering these songs in any way. They've been covered enough. Buried, as a matter a fact. What me and my band are basically doing is uncovering them. Lifting them out of the grave and bringing them into the light of day."
