Sir Tom Jones plays tracks from his new album 'Spirit In The Room.' On this album, Tom draws on an evocative range of compositions executed with an unprocessed passion that make them his own. From Tom Wait's 'Bad As Me', a wonderful rendition of Odetta's 'Hit Or Miss', the front porch blues of Vera Hall Ward's 'Travelling Shoes' and a stunning reading of the other-worldly 'Charlie Darwin' by Low Anthem.

Lauren plays this week's Peoples Playlist; half an hour of brilliant tunes chosen by the listener on a given theme, free music in MPFree and take some time out to enjoy a gorgeous tune in The Headphone Moment.
