Bob Dylan is recording a new studio album.

According to the Aspen Times, the folk legend has been working on new material at a studio in Los Angeles owned by US singer-songwriter Jackson Browne.

In an interview with the newspaper, musician David Hidalgo – who contributed to Dylan's last studio album, the festive-themed 'Christmas In The Heart' in 2009 – said that he had been working with the singer on a new record.

Speaking about the material, Hidalgo, who is also a member of the band Los Lobos, said:

It was a great experience. And different. Each one has been different, all completely different approaches. It's an amazing thing, how he keeps creativity. I don't see how he does it.


Although it is not known when the album is released or what its title will be, Hidalgo did reveal that it could have a Mexican-influenced sound as he had played an accordion and a Tres – which is a guitar-like instrument – during the sessions. "He'd [Dylan] would say, 'Wow, what's that?" said Hidalgo. "He liked the sound. So we'd get it in there."

Bob Dylan has released 34 studio albums in his recording career. Earlier this year, a charity album 'Chimes Of Freedom: Songs Of Bob Dylan Honouring 50 Years Of Amnesty International' was released featuring artists covering some of their favourite Dylan songs including Adele, My Chemical Romance and Queens Of The Stone Age.
