This season we’re chatting about things our guests have explored during the pandemic and its various lockdowns. Tom’s love of music has seen him take on a project of re-interpretation, tackling a diverse set of songs of personal importance that have impacted him across his long career.

The result is new record Surrounded By Time, co-produced by Ethan Johns and Mark Woodward, which marks out new territory with a sonic landscape of outstanding musicianship. We’re chatting with Tom about some of the artists and songs that inspired him on the record, and his approach to re-imagining those tracks for a whole new audience. Surrounded by Time is released on 23 April.
