Spirit In The Room is Tom Jones' follow-up to 2010's acclaimed collection of songs that was Praise And Blame, which saw Jones mark a return to his roots with work drawn from the American spiritual repertoire. The album once again brings together Ethan Johns (Brit Award Producer of the Year 2011) and Jones for intimate performances with a select group of musicians. Recorded at Bath's Real World studios, Spirit In The Room includes gems from a diverse choice of writers: Linda & Richard Thompson, Leonard Cohen and Paul McCartney amongst others. Tracks featured include an interpretation of Tom Wait's “Bad As Me”, a rendition of Odetta's “Hit Or Miss”, the front porch blues of Vera Hall Ward's “Travelling Shoes” and a reading of the other-worldly “Charlie Darwin” by Low Anthem.
