Shadows in the Night is the thirty-sixth studio album by Bob Dylan, released by Columbia Records on February 3, 2015. For a Bob Dylan album, it is unusual in that none of the songs are original compositions. Instead, the album consists of covers of traditional pop standards made famous by Frank Sinatra, chosen by Dylan himself. On January 23, 2015, it was announced that 50,000 free copies would be given away to randomly selected AARP The Magazine readers. Prior to the album’s release, Dylan recorded a cover of the tune “Full Moon and Empty Arms” and made it available for free streaming online on May 13, 2014.

Louis Allen “Lou” Rawls (December 1, 1933 – January 6, 2006) was an American recording artist, voice actor, songwriter, and record producer. He was known for his smooth vocal style: Frank Sinatra once said that Rawls had “the classiest singing and silkiest chops in the singing game”. Rawls released more than 60 albums, sold more than 40 million records, and had numerous charting singles, most notably his song “You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine”. He worked as a television, motion picture, and voice actor and was known for his frequently used expression, “Yeah, buddy!” Rawls was also a three-time Grammy-winner, all for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.
In December 2005, it was announced that Rawls was being treated for cancer in both his lungs and brain. With his wife of three years by his side, Lou Rawls succumbed to his illness on January 6, 2006, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. – Wikipedia
