Tom Jones Album - Tribute to Elvis
"Tom Jones' new album is a tribute to his late pal Elvis Presley - the Welsh singer promised The King he would one day record gospel songs.
The music veteran moved away from pop to release 'Praise & Blame', a compilation of hymns and gospel tracks.
Jones admits he has wanted to release a gospel album ever since Presley suggested it during a late night jam session, and the Sex Bomb hitmaker was determined to keep his word.
He says, 'We would stay up all night talking about music. He was surprised I knew gospel songs and wanted to know when I'd record a gospel album. I said I would and this is it'. "
