Bob Dylan has announced that he will release a new album featuring covers of classic American songs, titled ‘Triplicate’, on 31 Mar.

Split into three discs – either virtual, CD or vinyl – each is “to be presented in a thematically-arranged ten song sequence, illuminating compositions from great American songwriters interpreted by Dylan through his artistry as a vocalist, arranger and bandleader”. So now you know.

Composers including Charles Strouse and Lee Adams, Harold Arlen and Ted Koehler, Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh, and Harold Hupfield. The first single is Carl Sigman and Jimmy Van Heusen’s ‘I Could Have Told You’, made famous by Frank Sinatra.

With that out of the way, will Dylan go and give his Nobel prize speech? Who knows? Probably not, I guess.

Listen to Dylan’s version of ‘I Could Have Told You’ here:
