Bob Dylan is at it again.

The legendary folk artist released his newest album "Fallen Angels" today, marking his 37th studio release.

“Fallen Angels” features 12 interpretations of pop standards made famous by crooners such as Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, Columbia Records said in a release.

Reviews so far have been mostly positive, with Metacritic holding a score of 79 out of 100 based on 10 reviews.

"His voice may be husky and damaged from decades of performing, but there’s beauty to its character," Entertainment Weekly reviewer Jim Farber said.

According to Columbia, the album was recorded at Sinatra’s former home base, Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, with the help of Dylan’s touring band. Dylan himself produced the record under the pseudonym of “Jack Frost.”

The first single, Sinatra’s “Melancholy Mood," was released in early April.

With the new release, 2016 is an active year for Dylan. He will be taking part in a gargantuan show with Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Roger Waters of Pink Floyd and The Who this fall. And Amazon is developing a TV show based on his music.
