Officially announced in mid-January in the U.K. and detailed stateside on Wednesday, the album will be his first since 2015’s Long Lost Suitcase. In addition to the album news, a new music video was premiered for the song “Talking Reality Television Blues,” a cover of the original from Todd Snider. Take a look/listen below:

“I was there when TV started – didn’t know I’d become a part of it – but it could be that its power is to remind us how wonderful, crazy and inventive we are, but also how scary the reality it reflects can be,” said Tom Jones of the song and video in a statement.
