Invigorating 12-Song Collection Spotlights Compositions from Great American Songwriters As Interpreted by Bob Dylan and His Band: Fallen Angels Includes Works by Mercer, Arlen, and More
Featuring twelve classic American tunes written by some of music's most acclaimed and influential songwriters, Fallen Angels showcases Bob Dylan's unique and much-lauded talents as a vocalist, arranger and bandleader. The Jack Frost-produced album is the 37th studio set from Dylan and marks the first new music from the artist since Shadows In The Night. On Fallen Angels, Dylan performs songs from a diverse array of writers such as Johnny Mercer, Harold Arlen, Sammy Cahn and Carolyn Leigh to record with his touring band. The album was recorded at Capitol Studios in Hollywood.
Dylan's previous album of classic American songs, 2015's Shadows In The Night, reached the Top 10 in seventeen countries. The album also received worldwide critical acclaim, with The Telegraph's Neil McCormick giving the album five out of five stars and describing the work as "spooky, bittersweet, mesmerizingly moving" with "the best singing from Dylan in 25 years." Jon Pareles wrote in the New York Times, "Mr. Dylan presents yet another changed voice...a subdued, sustained tone....Shadows in the Night maintains its singular mood: lovesick, haunted, suspended between an inconsolable present and all the regrets of the past."
Dylan's six previous studio albums have been universally hailed as among the best of his storied career, achieving new levels of commercial success and critical acclaim for the artist. The Platinum-selling Time Out Of Mind from 1997 earned multiple Grammy Awards, including Album Of The Year, while Love and Theft continued Dylan's Platinum streak and earned several Grammy nominations and a statue for Best Contemporary Folk album. Modern Times, released in 2006, became one of the artist's most popular albums, selling more than 2.5 million copies worldwide and earning Dylan two more Grammys. Together Through Life became the artist's first album to debut at #1 in both the U.S. and the UK, as well as in five other countries, on its way to surpassing sales of one million copies. Tempest received unanimous worldwide critical acclaim upon release and reached the Top 5 in 14 countries, while Shadows In The Night was hailed by fans and critics for Dylan's singular interpretive artistry.
