Bryan Ferry is set to release an album of Bob Dylan covers, imaginatively titled â€˜Dylanesque.â€™
The Roxy Music frontman releases the 11 track long-player on March 5 and covers some of Dylanâ€™s most famous tracks.
Amongst the classics included are â€˜The Times They Are A Changinâ€™, â€˜Simple Twist Of Fateâ€™ and â€˜All Along The Watchtowerâ€™ â€“ later of course covered by Jimi Hendrix.
Ferry said in a statement: â€œI got the feeling people expected something fairly refined from me.
â€œMy voice has gotten deeper and the albumâ€™s got an element of roughness to it and, I hope, a kind of haunting quality. The singer in me is overjoyed to be singing these songs.â€
The singer will also be going on a lengthy jaunt of the UK throughout the spring, kicking off in Carlisle on March 1.
