Tom Jones Taps Ethan Johns, Stella Mozgawa for ‘Spirit in the Room’

  • by David Greenwald | 3.30.2012

Contrary to Mr. Jones’ most famous song, it is, in fact, unusual to get a producer like Ethan Johns (Ryan Adams, Laura Marling) and a drummer like Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint) both on an aging disco icon’s new record. Spirit in the Room, Jones’ suddenly very promising covers collection, is due May 21 in the UK, with a U.S. date still to come. [via Consequence of Sound]
