Tom Jones Releases Video For 'Elvis Presley Blues' (Top Story)

On Tuesday Tom Jones Releases Video For 'Elvis Presley Blues' was a top story. Here is the recap: (The Blues) Tom Jones has released a video for Elvis Presley Blues, his near-solo tribute to his old friend. The promo features the Welshman alone in a room, watching old movie clips of The King, as he delivers a powerful vocal rendition of Gillian Welch track, backed only by a lap-slide drone.

Jones tells NPR: "To me the song is a celebration of Elvis, a celebration of his life. I wanted to show that. I wanted to let people know how much I felt about Elvis - that he did change music.

"I thought, 'If we can capture that it would be a hell of a tribute.'" Jones played London's O2 last night with Van Morrison as part of this year's Prudential Bluesfest. Watch the video - here.
