Bob Dylan recording new album at Jackson Browne’s LA studio
Bob Dylan has been working on his next album at a studio in Los Angeles owned by US singer-songwriter Jackson Browne, the Aspen Times have revealed.
In an interview David Hidalgo, a member of the band Los Lobos, told the Aspen Times this week that he has been working with the famous musician on the new record, having also played on the last two Dylan albums, including 2009’s 'Christmas Through The Heart'.
Hidalgo described the sessions as sounding “completely different” to anything Dylan had ever done. He told the newspaper: “It was a great experience. And different. Each one has been different, all completely different approaches. It's an amazing thing, how he keeps creativity. I don't see how he does it.”
No release or title details have been revealed yet for the forthcoming album, which will be Dylan’s 35th studio album to date. However, Hidalgo did suggest that it could have a Mexican-influenced sound as he had played an accordion and a Tres – a guitar-like instrument – during the sessions. He revealed that: “[Dylan] would say, ‘Wow, what's that?’ He liked the sound. So we'd get it in there.”
Earlier this year, a charity album 'Chimes Of Freedom: Songs Of Bob Dylan Honouring 50 Years Of Amnesty International' was released featuring artists such as Adele, Maroon 5 and Ke$ha covering some of their favourite Dylan songs.
