    Bob Dylan Pays Homage to Film Noir in New Video for "The Night We Called It a Day"

    Columbia RecordsThe first official video to a song from Bob Dylan's new standards collection, Shadows in the Night has premiered online.  The stylized black-and-white clip, which accompanies Dylan's rendition of the 1940s ballad "The Night We Called It a Day," pays tribute to the classic film noir pictures of yesteryear.

    The video stars Dylan and actor Robert Davi as two men who apparently are vying for the affections of the same woman, an alluring blonde burlesque dancer portrayed by Tracy Phillips, daughter of former Dallas Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips.  After meeting up in a smoky club, the three cross paths again at the woman's apartment and, after a double cross or two, let's just say that things don't end well for most members of the love triangle.

    The clip was directed by Nash Edgerton, an Australian director and stuntman who previously was behind the lens for two other similarly violent Dylan videos, 2009's "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'" and 2012's "Duquesne Whistle."

    Shadows in the Night, released February 3, is a collection of 10 vintage songs previously recorded by Frank Sinatra.  Dylan will launch a U.S. tour in support of the album on April 10 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.  The trek currently is mapped out through a May 11 show in St. Louis.
