Sir Tom Jones has been dropping clues about his latest release on social media all this week. The singer, who turned 80 in June, posted a picture of what could be a new single or album cover online, sending fans into a frenzy with anticipation and excitement.

The colourful artwork posted on Twitter last night read: “Tom Jones Surrounded By Time.”

The Voice UK coach captioned the image, which he shared with his 595,500 followers, simply: “Coming Soon”.

Many rushed to the comments section of the post to express their delight, after trying to guess what Tom’s new project could be.

Despite the most obvious answer being new music from the crooner, some followers thought Tom could be releasing a book or even a film.

“So silly question…. This is a new album? Not a single or book? Hope you extend your book with new chapters in the future as well,” one social media user wrote alongside the post.

“I believe it’s a movie,” a second person offered.

“Oh could it be an extra tour?” a third remarked.

“Still don’t know what it is, but if it’s from you I’ll be ordering!” a fourth fan exclaimed.

“It’s a New book!, the New album! A script, a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Superman, lol! The intoxicating suspense of games & making us guess, love it!”(sic) another follower said, clearly enjoying the guessing game.

Other fans spoke of their excitement at the prospect of new music from the octogenarian.

“This is good news in these dark days. At last something fabulous to look forward to. How many sleeps until we know a date for release?? I’m super looking forward to this.”

“Talk about something to cheer me up on a day when everything seems to be going wrong! I can’t believe I’m living to see the release of a new Tom Jones record! Has anyone else released an album at 80???? Now someone will have to release a new album at 100 to compete!”(sic) another added.

On Instagram this morning, Tom confirmed that he would be releasing new material.

Alongside a short clip on his new track, he shared the news on the picture-sharing site.

“Coming tomorrow, my brand new song Talking Reality Television Blues taken from my forthcoming album Surrounded by Time.”

During a recent television appearance Tom told fans that he had been working on some new music during the first national lockdown, which would soon be released.

Talking to Jools Holland on his annual Hootenanny show on New Year’s Eve, the singer spoke of his plans for 2021.

“I recorded an album just before the lockdown, at the beginning of the year,” he said.

“We’ve been mixing it and putting it together. That’s what I’ll be looking forward to,” he told the 62-year-old pianist.

Providing the coronavirus restrictions allow it, Tom is also set to go on tour later this year.

While chatting to the host, the ITV star revealed that he’d already had the COVID-19 jab, giving him extra protection from the virus for the year ahead.

He said it was the one perk of his age.

“That’s one good thing about being 80. You’re first in line for the jab,” Tom quipped.
