Tom Waits tends to do things at his own pace.
A true artist, the American songwriter is unmoved by terms such as 'touring cycles' or 'promotional schedules'.
However he does seem to be stirring. Small news, but vital: Tom Waits has signed a new deal with booking agent William Morris Endeavour, his first such deal in 20 years.
News broke via Billboard and, whilst no timescale has been mentioned, any possibility of Tom Waits playing live is one Clash would dearly welcome.
Of course, if Mr. Waits wants to chat about this he could always phone the office...
