Tom Jones' Spirit in the Room Album to Be Released in the US Later This Month
Tom Jones' latest studio album, Spirit in the Room, finally will get its U.S. release on April 23. The 13-track collection, which arrived in U.K. stores last May, features the Welsh pop legend's interpretations of compositions by such renowned artists as Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits. The album also includes a tune titled "Travelling Blues" that Jones co-wrote with producer Ethan Johns.
The U.S. release of Spirit in the Room marks the start of a new deal Jones recently signed with Rounder Records. The first single, a cover of late folk singer Odetta's "Hit or Miss," will be sent to radio this Monday. Fans who submit their email address at TomJones.com will receive a free MP3 download of the track.
Jones is planning to announce a series of U.S. concerts soon to promote the album.
