Folk legend Bob Dylan has unexpectedly released a cover of Frank Sinatra’s track “Full Moon and Empty Arms.”

The “Like a Rolling Stone” singer has followed in the footsteps of artists like BeyoncĂ© and has debuted his own version of the 1945 standard on his website without any publicity or prior warning.

On Tuesday, Dylan’s spokesperson told Rolling Stone that fans can expect more of the same from Dylan, as the track is “definitely from a forthcoming album due later on this year.”

The music icon also posted a photo of himself with the phrase “Shadows in the Night” written across it, hinting at what might be the title of the new album.

Dylan’s last album, “Tempest,” was released in 2012. He kicks off the European leg of his Never Ending Tour in Ireland on June 16.
