Last seen successfully out-shouting rival judge Jessie J on ‘The Voice’, Tom Jones has just announced the release of brand new covers album called ‘Spirit In The Room’, conveniently timed to coincide with his stint on the primetime BBC talent show.
The LP follows 2010′s lauded ‘Praise And Blame’, and – like its prequel – was produced by Ethan Johns, who also accompanies Jones on the record alongside other musicians including Warpaint drummer Stella Wazgawa. Set for release via Island Records on 21 May, it features Tom’s re-renderings of classic originals from Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Paul McCartney and Paul Simon.
