Video of the Week

Taking a page from the Johnny Cash playbook, (IE: “Hurt“), Tom Jones gives us a surprisingly subtle and understated cover of the Leonard Cohen classic “Tower of Song“.

We have to admit, after hearing several covers of this Cohen gem, this one is our new definitive. 

The track is from Jone’s excellent new album Spirit in the Room, out in the U.K. this week and coming to the states on 6/5/2012, we highly recommend you check it out when you get the chance, it’s already on our list of Top 25 albums of 2012!
