Is this unusual? You tell me.
Jones has had "Decline and resurgence" before, and his gospel-influenced Praise & Blame, "...the 39th studio album by Welsh musician Tom Jones, released 26 July 2010. The album was Jones’ first release with Island Records and was recorded in 2009 at the Real World Studios in England. Produced by Ethan Johns, Praise & Blame was made up of largely little known devotional and gospel covers, marking a departure from the pop-orientated style that had dominated Jones' recent recordings..." did send him into a new direction.
