Fallen Angels - First Listen of the New Bob Dylan Album

Today I was able to hear a preview of Bob Dylan's new album Fallen Angels that was put on the web by NPR.  The album will be released on May 20.  Since I bought tickets for his July 8th concert at Forest Hills Stadium, I will get a copy of the CD for free.  The songs are:

Young at Heart
Maybe You'll Be There
Polka Dots and Moonbeams
All the Way
All or Nothing at All
On a Little Street in Singapore
It Had to Be You
Melancholy Mood
That Old Black Magic
Come Rain or Come Shine

These are all adult standards and are not songs written by Dylan.  The best thing about listening to Dylan is to analyze his songs and even take them apart word by word.  The last Dylan album with his compositions was The Tempest which was released in 2012.  Has Dylan ceased writing songs?  Certainlyover the years hundreds if not thousands of recording artists have covered Dylan songs.  I guess turnabout is fair play and Dylan has chosen to cover adult standards written by others.
