First Impressions: Free To Be Joss Stone

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Breathe a sigh of relief Joss Stone fans, as Stone's long awaited fourth effort, Colour Me Free is coming 'round the bend sooner than expected. While it has been a tedious wait as we've been hearing loads about fresh compositions here, and new endeavors there, some sprinkles of new album news and a new single have come to surface, and this time the information is well...set in "stone". Ha. Ha. *rimshot* Colour Me Free is set to be released exclusively at Target and also digitally released on iTunes October 20th. The overseas release date is penned for November 2nd. The album is produced by Stone, as well as her Mind, Body and Soul partners in producing and songwriting crime, Johnathan Shorten and Conner Reeves. Now that the technical stuff is out of the way, let's get down to digging on the first single, "Free Me" which is undeniably groovin' with a rock steady Blues meets Southern rock style. Almost Ike and Tina Turner-esque in a way, with a punchy instrumental break that spices things up towards the middle. It's solid Joss style, yet it's welcomed since its been awhile since we've heard from the British soulstress. Anticipation is already settling in for this fourth installment thanks to the brisk stride of "Free Me".
