Get weeknumber and year from date


I need a function that will return a string with the weeknumber and the calculated year for any date on monday (first day of the week).

Normally it would by easy:
IntToStr(WeekOf(myDate)) + ' ' + IntToStr(YearOf(MyDate))

But, when week of given date is arount 1 january than it should determine year based on following criteria.
If 1 January is on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, it is in week 01. If 1 January is on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday, it is in week 52 or 53 of the previous year.

Week 1 of 2014 starts on 30-12-2013 till 6-1-2014
Running the code above would result in Week 1 Year 2013, where it should be Week 1 Year 2014.

But that function only returns the weeknumber, not the actual year it belongs to.

There is overloaded function which will return belonging year too...
  w, y: word;
  dt: TDateTime;
  dt := DateTimePicker1.Date;
  w := WeekOfTheYear(dt, y);

  Edit4.Text := Format('Week %d Year %d', [w,  y]);
