New Bob Dylan album to embrace Latin American sounds
LOS ANGELES, March 15 — American music legend Bob Dylan is set to release a new album inspired by Latin American music, according to David Hidalgo, multi-instrumentalist for the band Los Lobos, in an interview in Aspen Times.
Published on Friday, Hidalgo revealed that he and Dylan are currently recording Dylan's 35th studio album in Jackson Browne's Los Angeles studio.
While Hidalgo didn't release many details about the album itself, he did note that "it was a great experience" and that he introduced the 70-year-old star to a number of Latin American instruments, including the Mexican tres six-string guitar.
Dylan's last studio album, Christmas in the Heart, was released in 2009. Earlier this year, Amnesty International released a massive compilation album dedicated to the star featuring covers of his tracks by artists Miley Cyrus, Adele, Kesha and My Chemical Romance, among others. — AFP-Relaxnews
