The album of spiritually-themed American repertoire was recorded as wholly live performances with multi-award winning producer/player Ethan Johns. Following the success of Praise & Blame, Tom released Spirit In The Room’ in May 2012. Like it’s predecessor, the collection is a collaboration with Ethan, allowing an unvarnished Tom Jones to bring a voice to songs as only he can.
