Miley Cyrus, Ke$ha and Adele are set to contribute covers of Bob Dylan songs for a new tribute album.

The album is to be titled 'Chimes Of Freedom: Songs Of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International' and will be released in early 2012. All the proceeds from the compilation will be donated to Amnesty International.

The compilation will also features covers of the folk legend from the likes of Sting, The Dave Matthews Band, Patti Smith and My Morning Jacket.

Adele will contribute her cover of Dylan's 'Make You Feel My Love', which also featured on her debut album '19', while Ke$ha will offer a new rendition of 'Don't Think Twice, It's Alright'. It has not been announced which Dylan track Miley Cyrus will cover.

Ke$ha has also spoken about her cover and said that Dylan has been a massive influence on her. She also said she believes she has more in common with Dylan than people might think. She said:

When you think of me, you wouldn't think of Bob Dylan. My music is more about the going crazy than politics. But he's a huge influence - he writes his own music and means what he says. I write my own music and I fucking mean every word I sing.
