In 2008 S-Curve Records released “If He Should Ever Leave You” from the album 24 Hours. This was Jones’ first album of new material released in the US in 15 years. “The fire is still in me. Not to be an oldie, but a goodie. I want to be a contender.” Jones said. The song was named the 9th best song of 2008 by “Spinner,” and Jones was inducted into the Hit Parade Hall of Fame.
