Tom Jones has released the  extended version of Surrounded By Time –  Including newly released ‘One Hell Of A Life, live-in concert tracks and a conversation with Peter Paphides

On its release earlier this year, Surrounded By Time achieved the Number One position on the album charts,  firmly cementing the working relationship that both he and producer Ethan Johns have cultivated since 2010’s Praise & Blame.

At the age of 81 Tom is the oldest male solo artist to achieve this ranking (with new material) whilst at the same time receiving some of his best reviews to date, with the critics running out of superlatives. In terms of a sixty year career, this is an incredible achievement.

Surrounded by Time marks out new territory with a diverse selection of tracks that have impacted Tom over what has been an extraordinary career. The two newly recorded songs, One Hell Of A  Life  and Not Dark Yet  deliver unique and wonderful interpretations of songs, befitting  their  addition to the original, inspired  running order.

The extended version of Surrounded By Time is available both in a beautiful Deluxe package and standard cd. CD1 is the original album audio and CD2  includes two new tracks, Not Dark Yet and the fittingly titled One Hell Of A Life. Additionally there are four live tracks  recorded at this summer’s  album showcase at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire, book-ended with a captivating conversation with journalist and broadcaster Peter Paphides, exploring the album’s birth and creation and life through lockdown.
