Following the recent announcement of his forthcoming album Surrounded By Time Tom Jones is pleased to share further musical insight with No Hole In My Head and its accompanying video.
Watch the video below.
Having received its worldwide premiere earlier today on Zoe Ball’s BBC Radio 2 show and slightly ahead of an appearance on this Friday night’s Graham Norton show, No Hole In My Head forges ahead treading new ground for an extraordinary talent. Entering his seventh decade as a recording artist, No Hole In My Head and recent predecessor Talking Reality Television Blues depict a narrative that not only traces an incredible career but also reveals a universal relevance to a diverse contemporary audience.
Talking about the track, he says; “This song is powerful at any age. It’s about having confidence in who you are. Particularly during this time of a pervasive, boundless media that can wield so much influence, it’s more important than ever to know and be strong in your own self.”
Coupled with a video that features an impassioned Tom Jones turning the tables on a mysterious shadowy oppressor, it’s a formidable pairing that imparts the nuances of the song that once again portray an artist who shows little sign of slowing up.
