New: Tom Jones “Bad As Me”

I loved Tom Jones’ 2010 album Praise and Blame so you can imagine I was excited to hear that he was working on the follow up. Spirit In The Room will be released May 21st. Our first glimpse at the record is “Bad As Me,” a track that mixes tribal beats with Jones’ booming tenor. Instrumentally it sounds more like Tom Waits than Tom Jones but Jones knocks the track out of the park. Edit: It has come to my attention this IS a Tom Waits cover. Tom Jones knocks this cover out of the park.
