Tom Jones: Surrounded By Time
It's been almost eleven years since Tom Jones released his album Praise & Blame. On it, he paid tribute to his musical roots. Spirit In The Room (2012) and Long Lost Suitcase (2015) followed - and struck in the same, successful notch. Jones is known for making cover versions his own through his unique, distinctive voice. It's only fitting, then, that the 80-year-old now returns with another album consisting largely of outside material. For the longplayer Surrounded By Time Jones got Ethan Johns and Mark Woodward on board as producers. Together with them he also wrote the song Samson And Delilah, which is included on the record. Surrounded By Time also features songs by Bob Dylan (One More Cup Of Coffee), Terry Callier (Lazarus Man), Cat Stevens/Yusuf Islam (Popstar) and Michael Kiwanuka (I Won't Lie).
