br /> Entitled Christmas in the Heart, the follow-up to April 2009's Together Through Life will be the folk troubadour's 47th album, and will be available from October 13th 2009.

The legendary singer-songwriter, who began his music career more than 40 years ago playing a Gibson acoustic guitar, also announced a full American tour to coincide with the release of his new material.

All the royalties generated by sales of the record in America will go to the charity Feeding America, which donates food to more than 25 million low-earning people across the United States.

"It's a tragedy that more than 35 million people in this country alone … often go to bed hungry and wake up each morning unsure of where their next meal is coming from," said Dylan.
