New picture prompts fan speculation

Tom Waits has posted a new picture online, leading fans to speculate that he is to go on tour.

Tom Waits never does things in an obvious fashion. In the run up to 2008's 'Glitter & Doom' album the songwriter began posting curious videos online, odd vignettes from the further reaches of his imagination.

Now the songwriter seems to be up to his old tricks. Tom Waits has posted a photo online, featuring him in full pirate dress.

Labelled 'Coming August 7th' the picture comes with the caption 'Ready To Come Aboard?'. The stunt has caused immense speculation online, with fans even questioning whether Tom Waits has chartered his own ship for a maritime tour.

Check out the photo below.

Could it happen? Well, anything's a possibility with Tom Waits. The singer has been stirring of late, performing material from 'Bad As Me' on the Stateside chat shows Letterman and Fallon.
