Bob Dylan

[REVIEW] Bob Dylan Takes on Frank Sinatra's 'Stay with Me' with Some Elderly Swagger and Grace [LISTEN]

Buzz 13:28PM EDT

At first, the concept seemed questionable: Folk legend Bob Dylan recording an entire album of Frank Sinatra covers. Then the lead single "Full Moon and Empty Arms" surfaced, causing some naysayers to second guess their initial judgments. Dylan has followed the tune with "Stay with Me," another sublime cut from the upcoming "Shadows in the Night" LP. Dylan is apparently not just a Sinatra fan — he is also an admirer of the 1963 film "The Cardinal." "Stay with Me" is a pleading love song used as the theme for the movie. Now, we are dealing with two different voices at different points in their careers — Sinatra would have been 49 whereas Dylan is now 73.READ MORE

Sam Smith 'In the Lonely Hour' Goes Platinum

Buzz 17:04PM EDT

Sam Smith's month keeps getting better. After earning six Grammy nominations for his album "In the Lonely Hour," Sam Smith has reached another major milestone. The album has at last sold a million copies and has been certified platinum by the RIAA, according to a press release. In addition to selling 1 million copies with physical and digital download sales, the album has eclipsed that mark and sold an additional million when factoring track and album stream equivalents as computed by Nielsen SoundScan. Sam Smith has been arguably the biggest breakout artist of 2014. First tabbed by Disclosure to sing on their hit single "Latch" in 2012, the 23-year-old started to build a fan base in 2013, before his single "Stay with Me" was released earlier this year in April and has since gone four times platinum and stayed near the top of the charts for the better part of the year. He was nominated for six Grammys: two for "In the Lonely Hour" for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album and three for "Stay with Me," which garnered nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. He was also nominated for Best New Artist.READ MORE
