Album Watch: Joss Emerges With 'Governmentalist'

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

Joss Stone has been sneaky and sly fox as of late. The British soul bird has been recording her fourth album in a secret location (no-so secret's her mom's house) as to not have her record label, EMI interfere with its creative process (you know to avoid Kelly Clarkson-My December-itis) whatever Joss has cooking, it's going to be something worth breaking the piggy bank for. A new song from the upcoming project (due out February 2009) has popped up and its called, "Governmentalist". This was the track that President-Elect, Barack Obama asked her write for his campaign, and Joss performed the track at an event during election week earlier this month. The song is slated to be on the new effort and this might be an inkling to having Joss on board for the Inauguration ceremony. I have been missing me some Joss, and this song hits the spot with its political standpoint and grainy soul-blues strut. This is a real winner and shows Joss is still keeping on her soul toes. Listen to the track below and be on the lookout for Joss's return next year!
