He reworked this American Classic!
In the history of American music, there might not be a more iconic tune than the 1927 hit from Hoagy Carmichael, “Stardust.” The song is a jazz classic, and is one of the most covered songs of all-time, being covered well over a thousand times by artists like Frank Sinatra, Willie Nelson and Ringo Starr in its 90 year history,
The most recent icon to cover this classic, is Bob Dylan. Bob’s cover strays away from his traditional folk rock sound, and captures the pure jazz sound. This seriously sounds like a recording from the 1920’s, and we can’t get enough!
Fun Fact: Originally published with a two-word title (“Star Dust”), this classic song incorporates a timeless theme: the solace of dreams when overwhelmed by heartbreak. If you can’t be with your love, at least you can dream about her.
Bob recorded this wonderful piece of music for his new album Triplicate, a triple LP release that is available now! Check out the amazing recording down below, and let us know what you think!
