Welsh singer Tom Jones has shared a video for his cover of the 1970 Cat Stevens (aka Yusuf Islam) song “Pop Star.” It is the latest single from his upcoming covers album, Surrounded by Time, which will be out on April 23 via BMG. Watch the video below.

“To me, ‘Pop Star’ is all about the excitement I felt at the time of my first success, and I imagine that a great many bands and artists feel the same when things start to happen for them,” explains Jones in a press release. “To get your first TV records out there, to be on TV for the first time, to get your first important gigs, and to go to the bank with your first earnings…what could be better than that? This track contains all that fantastic energy and brings back great memories for me.”

Ethan Johns and Mark Woodward co-produced the album.
