Merry Christmas from Bob Dylan


Bob Dylan has been a busy man this year. He performed at the Rothbury Music Festival in early July, he released his 33rd studio album entitled Together Through Life in April, he embarked on a European tour that began in March and ended in early May and he is in the midst of The Bob Dylan Show Tour with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp which doesn’t end until October.

The 68-year-old folk legend seems to not know the meaning of ‘down time’ because Billboard has reported that he is now in the process of recording a Christmas album. Wow. The irony begins with the fact that Dylan was born Jewish, but there’s nothing wrong with spreading a little holiday spirit, no matter what religion you are.

Some tracks already set to make the final holiday fueled cut are "Must Be Santa", "Here Comes Santa Claus", "I'll Be Home for Christmas", and "O Little Town of Bethlehem". A full song list has yet to be announced, but Bob Dylan singing Christmas songs. Who would’ve thought we’d live to see the day.

Currently Listening to: "Bodysnatchers" by Radiohead (I'm going through a Radiohead phase. It's fantastic!)
