Bob Dylan’s 35th album is in the works.

Although details are slim, multi-instrumentalist David Hidalgo, who recently finished wrapping up recording sessions on the new album, hints at a Mexican influence.

Speaking to the Aspen Times about his latest -- Hidalgo, who is currently on tour with Grammy Award-winning Chicano rock band, Los Lobos -- shared this much about the recording session:

“It was a great experience. And different. Each one has been different, all completely different approaches. It's an amazing thing, how he keeps creativity. I don't see how he does it.”

Hidlago, who grew up in and later formed Los Lobos in the Mexican-American enclave of East Los Angeles, says Dylan took interest in the Latin American instruments lying around the studio, in particular the accordion and Cuban tres, a 3-string guitar.

“He'd say, ‘Wow, what's that?' He liked the sound. So we'd get it in there.”

No release date for the album has been set.
