Bob Dylan Confirms Charity Christmas Album

Bob Dylan has confirmed the release of a charity Christmas album to be released this October.

'Christmas In The Heart' features covers including 'Winter Wonderland', and is released on October 12. Dylan is donating all of his royalties from the album to charities including Feeding America.

Other songs featured include 'Here Comes Santa Claus', 'Little Drummer Boy' and 'Must Be Santa'.

As well as Feeding America, Dylan will also donate royalties from the album to an as-yet unnamed UK charity and a charity working in the developing world.

In a statement, Dylan commented that he chose to link up with Feeding America because of their work with hungry people in the US during the Christmas period.

"It's a tragedy that more than 35 million people in this country alone - 12 million of those children - often go to bed hungry and wake up each morning unsure of where their next meal is coming from," he said. "I join the good people of Feeding America in the hope that our efforts can bring some food security to people in need during this holiday season."
