Tom Jones Covers Leonard Cohen Track

Tom Jones has covered Leonard Cohen's Tower of Song, taken from Cohen's 1988 album, I'm Your Man, and co-written by Cohen and Jennifer Warnes.

The cover version has been taken from Tom Jones' forthcoming album, Spirit In The Room, on which he also covers songs by artists such as Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, Tom Waits and The Low Anthem.

Spirit In The Room, the follow up to 2010's Praise and Blame, is set for release on May the 21st and has been recorded with a band which includes Warpaint Stella Mozgawa on drums - pictured below - and Laura Marling producer and multi-instrumentalist Ethan Johns.

The album features 10 tracks in total and sees Jones singing his own versions of the title track from Tom Waits’ most recent album Bad As Me and Odetta's Hit Or Miss. The double A side single Hit Or Miss / Bad As Me is out on May the 14th.

Spirit In The Room also includes songs originally written by Blind Willie Johnson and Richard Thompson. Tom Jones recently covered Howlin Wolf's Evil. The track was released earlier this month on Jack White Third Man Records label as part of their Blue Series, along with a new version of Jones' 2002 track Jezebel.

Tom Jones will play London Hammersmith Apollo on July the 1st as part of BluesFest London. You can watch the video below:
