Latitude announced that the legendary Tom Jones is set to appear at this year’s Latitude Festival with a special performance on Thursday July 15th.
The appearance with his band will see Tom performing songs from his forthcoming album ‘Praise & Blame’ at midnight In The Woods.
This landmark album comes in the singerâ€™s 70th year, a glowing achievement in what has been a ground-breaking, unpredictable roller-coaster of a 45-year career.
The songs from â€˜Praise & Blameâ€™ (released 26th July on Island Records), are from a repertoire that includes American traditional, gospel and country, seeing Tom going back to his roots and creating a truly evocative musical work, aided and abetted by producer/musician Ethan Johns.
Tom Jones says of â€˜Praise & Blameâ€™: â€œItâ€™s food for thought, itâ€™s real, itâ€™s natural, and in that sense itâ€™s truly me.â€
This performance by Tom Jones will quite possibly be blowing the leaves off the trees when he takes to the secluded and magical stage In The Woods at midnightâ€¦.
