Bob Dylan says if he weren’t a musician, he would be a teacher

Bob Dylan is on the cover of the February/March issue of AARP magazine. In an interview the 73 year old said that if he had to do all these things again, he would be a school teacher. He added that probably he would have taught theology or Roman history.

The American singer would release “Shadows In the Night” on 3rd February. The album features tracks from 20s to 60s, that includes standards such as ”That Lucky Old Sun,” “Stay With Me” and “Autumn Leaves.”

The tracks were also recorded by Frank Sinatra. Bob told that he believes Sinatra would really be amazed he did these tracks with a 5 piece band. Bob is offering 50000 readers of the magazine a totally free copy of his album.

US country singer singer Bob Dylan does Sinatra

Bob Dylan’s brand new album that is all set to come out later in February would feature interpretations of classic tracks crooned by Frank Sinatra, all recorded and stripped down with minimal studio production. In the past, Bob had confirmed he was working on his thirty-sixth studio album, called Shadows in the Night, but very little was known regarding this.

The album holds the seventy-three year old singer’s rock legend’s versions of ten pop tracks that are mostly from 40s. Among other music artists, all have been performed by Sinatra. On Tuesday, Dylan in a statement told that he had wanted to do something like this for a very long time but he was never brave enough to approach thirty piece perplexed arrangements as well as refine them down for a 5 piece band.

Dylan stated that he as well as his band just recorded and played the tracks with no use of headphones, studio gadgetry or vocal booths. He added that he do not see himself as covering those tracks in any way. They have been covered quite well. In fact, they are buried. He added that he and his band is basically uncovering them. They are lifting them out of the grave and also bringing them into the light of day. The new album adds tracks like Full Moon and Empty Arms that was performed by Sinatra in the year 1945 and it is based on a Sergei Rachmaninoff piano composition.
