Sir Tom Jones releases his new album Surrounded by Time at the end of the month, featuring a number of iconic covers. One of his latest singles is One More Cup of Coffee, penned by Bob Dylan for the 1976 album Desire. Writing on his social media accounts, Sir Tom wrote: “Thrilled, to be able to share with you my next new single One More Cup Of Coffee. I hope you dig it. You can give it a listen on all your favourite digital platforms!”

Sir Tom Jones posted a video on his Instagram too, sharing why he chose to cover the track.

The 80-year-old said: “This song, One More Cup of Coffee, is an iconic song from Bob Dylan.

“Now this one to me, it just reminds you of things that maybe you have done that you shouldn’t have done.

“Or you’ve been to places that you shouldn’t have been.”

Sir Tom added: “You know, when I was young, you’re young and you go to places sometimes and you think ‘oh no, I might be out of my depth here.’ So then it’s like ‘One more of this or maybe I will try that one more time.’

“So I’m sure we have all got stories like that and this is a reminder to sort of try and stay away from temptation, whatever is tempting for you.

“So it’s just a reminder to try and fight off the temptations and get out of there before you have to go down to the valley below.”

The 80-year-old’s most recent single from his Surrounded By Time album is a cover of Pop Star.

This track originally featured on Cat Stevens’ 1970 album called Mona Bone Jakon.

In another video, Sir Tom said: “To me, a Pop Star is somebody that’s original that comes out and you think ‘Wow! That person is really shining’.

“And you got to come on like that on tv, on record…whatever you’re doing it’s got to be like… ‘wow!’ And that’s a Pop Star.”

Sir Tom added: “Now how long that lasts, that all depends on what type of talent you got.”

He wrote on social media earlier this week: “Fizzing with excitement…here comes Pop Star the latest tune from Surrounded By Time. It’ll get you smiling, moving and having some fun!

“Turn it up and hear it now on all your favourite digital platforms. Enjoy x.”

The singing legend has also announced he will perform a one-off gig at The O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London on July 27.

“Tickets will then go on general sale 9am on 16th April.

“As you can imagine, I am really looking forward to performing again and this one-off show that explores Surrounded By Time along with some additional special treats, will never be repeated, so I hope you can join me!”
