He may be 75 years old, but Bob Dylan is still churning out albums. And for the first time ever, he's releasing a three-disc collection of cover songs.

According to his website, the new record Triplicate features 30 recordings of "classic American tunes." Each disc in the set has its own theme and individual title: ‘Til The Sun Goes Down, Devil Dolls and Comin’ Home Late.

The Tambourine Man is no stranger to covers, but he's never put out a collection of this length before. Dylan handpicked each song, the website says, and a lot of them were once recorded by Frank Sinatra.

This is Dylan's 38th studio album, and it was self-produced under his alias, Jack Frost.

Here's one of the songs off of the first disc in the collection:

The past year has been pretty good to Minnesota's favorite songwriter. Dylan's 2016 album, Fallen Angels, was nominated for a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, and he won the Nobel Prize in Literature last fall.

His next performance in the U.S. is not until June, at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware.
