Bryan Ferry sings Dylan songs


Bryan Ferry is to release ‘Dylanesque’, an album of Bob Dylan cover songs, this Spring. The Roxy Music front man is a longtime fan of the great man Dylan having first recorded a swaggering version of “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” in 1973. Ferry says recording the new album has always been an ambition, saying, "I just thought it would be great to make a whole album of Dylan songs. And at the end of last year, finally, it happened." ‘Dylanesque’ features eleven Dylan songs, recorded in just one week in the studio with his full touring band backing him. Ferry says, "I wanted to get away from that locked-in-the-studio feeling. We were doing live vocals, harmonica, live everything."
