Hear track from new Dylan album – Listen

Which never ceases to be an exciting thing! Paste report: “Bob Dylan  has just released “Stardust,” the third track from his forthcoming triple album Triplicate, a continuation of his grizzled take on popular jazz standards. The single has just the right amount of swing and country shuffle, and it might be the best that Dylan has sounded in the recent jazz releases. “Stardust” follows previous singles “My One and Only Love” and “I Could Have Told You” leading up to the release of the full album.

This track is a Hoagy Carmichael cover, and one that’s been covered a lot in the past by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Ringo Starr and Willie Nelson. Dylan finds a good home right between Nelson and Sinatra, with the slide guitar acting as the jazz piano, guiding the tune in a glorious little shuffle. He recently talked about the release, saying, “I’ve hit upon new ways to uncover and interpret these songs that are right in line with the best recordings of my own songs, and my band and I really seemed to hit our stride on every level with Triplicate.”

Triplicate releases on March 31. Check out “Stardust” embedded below, and his two previous singles “My One and Only Love” and “I Could Have Told You” beneath it, because we care.
