Bob Dylan to Release Christmas Album

I'm not sure if the world needs a Christmas album by Bob Dylan but Dylan doesn't care; he has to follow his artistic vision so to heck with your ears:
Bob Dylan is set to release an album of Christmas songs, including "Here Comes Santa Claus" and the carol "O Little Town of Bethlehem," according to music websites.

Rumours of the album first emerged on Isis magazine website, which is devoted to Dylan. It later reported the songs had been recorded in Jackson Browne's studio in Santa Monica, California, in May.

David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, who played accordion on Dylan's chart-topping latest album "Together Through Life," is one of the musicians who took part in the sessions, it said.

Still, in a way, you have to admire Dylan's bravery. But you have to admire even more the bravery of anyone who'll listen to this album.
