Published Aug 26, 2009Like it or not, Bob Dylan will indeed spread a little holiday cheer with his very own Christmas album. Entitled Christmas in the Heart, the record is now confirmed to drop this fall on October 13.
The confirmation comes via the folks of Rolling Stone, who repot all U.S. royalties from the collection will benefit Feeding America, a domestic hunger-relief charity. Like we previously told you, the collection will feature yuletide stands such as "Must Be Santa," "Here Comes Santa Claus," "I'll Be Home For Christmas" and "O Little Town of Bethlehem."
Now, while Dylan did covert to Christianity in the late 1970s - and released such dreadful records as Saved - he supposedly went back to his Jewish roots years ago, making this release a bit of a head-scratcher for many. And while we don't have any great answers regarding the songwriter's current religious leaning, we do know that Dylan giving directions through a GPS system would be entirely awesome.
