Tom Jones has revealed he is ready to re-take his driving test.
The Welsh singer, who turned 70 last month, has to undergo the trial again for his Californian licence.
"You have to renew your licence here when you hit 70 - I feel prepared; I mean, I've been driving since I was 25 and I've re-read the book," he said. "There's not much more I can do. They'll certainly have a shock when I get in the car."
Tom is excited about his latest album, Praise & Blame, a collection of blues and gospel covers.
"The thing that excites me is where it might lead. I don't know if this is a fresh start, as such, but new things can open doors to new directions," he said.
"The thing about Praise & Blame is that these are the songs I started out singing in clubs, I've just never recorded them before. I think it will surprise people, but it won't shock. It's still me and my voice. No one can mistake that."
:: Praise & Blame will be released on July 26.
