Aled Jones Confirms New Album 'Blessings'

Thursday, 17 September 2020 Written by Sophie Williams

Aled Jones will release a new album this year.

‘Blessings’ is scheduled to arrive on November 6 via BMG, and features duets with a star-studded range of guests, including Dame Judi Dench, Susan Boyle, and Sami Yusuf, among others. Check out the full tracklist and artwork below.

The forthcoming LP will mark the Welsh vocalist’s 40th full-length to date, following 2019’s ‘Back In Harmony’, a collaborative effort with English classical crossover artist Russell Watson. In a statement, Jones said of the new record: 

“It has really been a cathartic experience for me; I’ve also learnt that we are all so similar, we all share so much. The challenges of doing the recordings remotely in a way made everything more special. When we look back on these times, we will remember how we all came together, and achieved things we never thought we could”.

In conjunction with the release, the Anglesey native has compiled a book of texts and scriptures, titled Everyday Blessings, to be published by Hodder and Stoughton. 

As a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Jones has rescheduled his Cathedral Tour of the UK and Ireland to spring 2021. Remaining tickets are on sale now.
