Dylan the Christmas
And finally it became public. The insistents rumours of a Dylan's new discographic issue made bigger the expectations among the fans; and more because of the topic. Could we say that, not even our laconic and austere uncle Zimmy could escape from the clutches of the Christmas spirit, that one that has broken the hardest hearts each year and that there are thousands of stories written about, starting with Ebenezer Scrooge or the Grinch and passing through Jack Skellington?
Well, this is what it seems. And it's just that Dylan, not only has dealed this topic, but has chosen the romantic-clacisist side of this celebration in the album cover -which remind us those typicals Christmas postcards of the XIXth century- and among the tracks of Christmas in the heart (this is the name of the album) there will be covers of several classic Christmas carols like “Here Comes Santa Claus,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Little Drummer Boy” and “Must Be Santa”.
And to seal with a double knot the ribbon of this surprising present: all the royalties of Christmas in the Heart, will be donated to the organization Feeding America, to try to guarantee 4 millions meals for this Christmas.
