Listen: Dylan croons forgotten Sinatra hit for his 36th album

Posted: 17 May 2014 04:05 AM PDT

Bob Dylan has released a version of Full Moon and Empty Arms, a hit for Frank Sinatra in 1945, which will appear on his new album to be released later this year.

One American music legend gives props to another American music legend in a delightfully surprising turn by erstwhile folkie Bob Dylan, who turns his crackling pipes to a near-forgotten hit from almost half a century ago by the late Ol' Blue Eyes.

The song, posted on Dylan's official website, was written by Buddy Kaye and Ted Mossman and is based on Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2. Artists ranging from Sarah Vaughan to the Platters have also covered the song in the past.

Rolling Stone magazine quoted a spokesperson for Dylan as saying: "This track is definitely from a forthcoming album due later on this year."

No title was given for the album but the website's home page cryptically featured a picture of Dylan and the words Shadows in the Night, which has pundits speculating that it's highly possible it will be the title for album No. 36.

The image currently fronting Bob Dylan's website is speculated to be the cover of his next album, set to be released later this year.  

Dylan's last album Tempest, his 35th, was a commercial and critical success when it was released in 2012. The 72-year-old has just completed a string of dates in Japan and Hawaii as part of his Never Ending Tour – which began in June 1988 – and will start a European leg in Cork, Ireland, on June 16. – Reuters

Dave Grohl directing documentary on Foo Fighters' new album

Posted: 16 May 2014 11:35 PM PDT

The frontman also filmed the band's historic road trip which helped in the album's writing and producing process.

The unusual writing and recording process that the Foo Fighters used to record its upcoming eighth album was captured on camera by frontman Dave Grohl, and will form the basis of a new documentary series that will air on HBO.

The band took a road trip to eight different cities in the United States – Chicago, Austin, Nashville, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, Washington DC and New York – to write and record with local musical legends. Every stop produced one new song, the lyrics for which Grohl wrote on the last day of the session in each city.

The band promises that each song will tap into the "experiences, interviews and personalities that became part of the process", as well as the history of each city. The documentary will also celebrate the Foo Fighters' 20th anniversary.

Grohl made his directorial debut last year with the documentary Sound City, about the famed titular Van Nuys, California, recording studio that housed legends such as Nirvana, Neil Young, and Tom Petty. — Reuters

Brother of Chile's ex-president releases World Cup song

Posted: 15 May 2014 11:05 PM PDT

The track, Vamos Chile, has a catchy tune and interesting beats. Just don't listen to it too many times in one day.

Miguel Pinera, famed in Chile for writing bouncy pop songs, dating models and being the brother of ex-president Sebastian Pinera, has released a track ahead of the soccer World Cup exhorting his fellow Chileans to cheer on the national squad.

Vamos Chile is intended as an homage to the Chilean team who will play in the finals in Brazil, said the flamboyant Pinera, whose dark beard and rotund shape give him a look similar to former Argentine soccer star Maradona.

"Come on Chile, come on Chile, we are going to the World Cup. With caipirinha and piscola we are going to celebrate," says the song, released this week.

A caipirinha is a classic Brazilian cocktail, while the piscola combination of local grape spirit pisco and cola is a Chilean favourite.

Nightclub owner Pinera, who has said he went to the Woodstock music festival in the 1960s, is well-known in his home country for a rather different lifestyle to his brother.

Sebastian Pinera is a billionaire businessman who was president of Chile from 2010, stepping down in March as Michelle Bachelet took over. He achieved brief international fame in 2010 when 33 Chilean miners were rescued after weeks underground following a mining accident.

The World Cup finals kick off on June 12 and Chile is in Group B with defending champions Spain, the Netherlands, and Australia. — Reuters
