Joss Stone will return next month with a new album, called 'LP1', her first release since leaving EMI Records and going independent. The album is produced by Dave Stewart from Eurythmics and is due out on July 26 (US & Rest of World) and August 1st (UK).
From the official press release:
"Joss Stone recently established her own label, Stone'd Records, hence the title of the first album to come out on the label, LP1, which is released in partnership with Surfdog. This is the first album Joss has recorded with total creative freedom. She co-wrote and co-produced it with Eurythmics co-founder, Dave Stewart. Together they immersed themselves into a rock n' soul musical odyssey in Nashville, Tennessee.
"This is the most fun I've ever had making a record with Crazy Dave Stewart at the helm, and yes the players in Nashville are unbelievable!!!" says Joss Stone. "This album captures a specific moment in time that was spontaneous and full of creativity."
"Joss can sing with the ferocity of a lioness and dynamically switch to the most delicate whisper in the same phrase," says Dave Stewart. "She is always honest and full of real emotion. It is an honor to work alongside a true artist who understands so much at such a young age."
Joss Stone has posted a sneak peek on YouTube, featuring footage of her recording and performing several tracks:
