Bob Dylan: More Xmas Video

ZIMMY JUST KEEPS ON GIVING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan's "Little Drummer Boy," the second video from Christmas In The Heart, is now premiering exclusively on Amazon.com. A far cry from the holly jolly mayhem of "Must Be Santa", the animated video for "Little Drummer Boy" was conceived and hand-painted by famed artist and filmmaker Jeff Scher, a regular contributor to the NYT.com/Opinion section with his blog, "The Animated Life."

See the video here.

Christmas In The Heart is the 47th album from Bob Dylan, and follows his worldwide chart-topping Together Through Life, released earlier this year. Songs performed by Dylan on this new album include, "Here Comes Santa Claus," "Winter Wonderland," and "Must Be Santa."

All of Bob Dylan's royalties from sales of Christmas In The Heart will be donated to Feeding America in the United States, Crisis in the United Kingdom, and the World Food Programme in 80 developing nations around the world. Dylan's initial contributions will provide more than four million meals to more than 1.4 million people in the United States, 15,000 meals to homeless people in the United Kingdom during the eight days of Christmas (December 23 - January 1), and 500,000 meals to school children in the developing world during the holiday season.

Recently, Bob Dylan's only interview in conjunction with the release of his Christmas In The Heart album was syndicated worldwide through the International Network Of Street Papers (INSP), and was run in publications benefiting the homeless such as Seattle's Real Change, Cincinnati's Street Vibe and Nashville's The Contributor. Completed last month with noted journalist Bill Flanagan, the wide-ranging interview includes Dylan's thoughts on all things Christmas, including his favorite holiday songs, special presents, the making of his new album, Pretty Boy Floyd and Babe Ruth.
