New Tom Waits recording: John the revelator

What better way to break a long spell without Tom Waits news than a new recording? Here's John the revelator from the upcoming album God don't never change - the songs of Blind Willie Johnson.

From the liner notes at Alligator Records:
John The Revelator performed by Tom Waits
Tom Waits: Vocals, Cigar Box Banjo • Casey Waits: Drums
Produced by Waits/Brennan • Engineered by Karl Derfler • Production Coordinator: Jodie Wilson
Traditional/Arranged by Tom Waits, Adapted by Son House. © 2015, Jalma Music, ASCAP, Sondick Music, BMI P Tom Waits, Under License to Burning Rose Productions, Ltd.

UPDATE (Feb. 12): Looks like the video has been removed from Youtube. You can still listen to the song at the Alligator Records website (although regional restrictions might apply, so I'm told).
