Singers Tommy Scott from the British rock band Space and Cerys
Matthews of Welsh rockers Catatonia are working with 58-year-old
Welsh-born pop crooner Tom Jones on Jones' next album, according to a Jones
publicist and an interview Scott did with Britain's BBC Radio 1. Scott's band and
Matthews teamed up last year to record the single "The Ballad of Tom Jones," which
appears on Space's U.K. album Tin Planet. Jones has used the song as warm-up
music at his shows, and he does a live version of Space's "Female of the Species."
Jones' publicist said other details on the album, which also will feature U.K. rapper
Phoebe One, remain sketchy.
