Rackhouse Pilfer work with Tom Jones & Imelda May on his new album!!!

Rackhouse followers we have some BIG news to share with you.... Back in March this year super producer Ethan Johns invited Rackhouse Pilfer to be the session band on 2 songs for Sir. Tom Jones new album "Long Lost Suitcase", which is to be released Worldwide Oct 9th. We played on the tracks "Honey, Honey" a Duet with Imelda May, this is also the 1st single from the album and is already being played on airwaves all over the world! We also played on the Rolling Stones song "Factory Girl", all recorded at the awesome Church Studios in London. As you can imagine when we got this invite we were so thrilled and excited, not least because we got to record and spend a day in the studio with Tom Jones and Imelda May, but we also got to work with Ethan Johns who is a long time Hero of ours having produced for Ryan Adams, Paul McCartney, Kings of Leon and so many more. Any of you that know Rackhouse well will know we LOVE Ryan Adams records!! We'll share more with you about this over the coming weeks as it unfolds. We'd love if Rackhouse fans would get behind this album and buy it to hear these recordings, you can Pre Order from this link:
