SOUL SENSATION READIES 'MIND, BODY & SOUL' (S-CURVE RECORDS), THE FOLLOW-UP TO HER GOLD-CERTIFIED DEBUT, FOR SEPTEMBER 28 RELEASE
Add songwriting to the list of Joss Stone's preternatural talents. For the past year, the seventeen-year-old soul sensation has been hard at work on 'Mind, Body & Soul,' the follow-up to her U.S. gold-certified 2003 release 'The Soul Sessions,' which has sold over 2 million copies worldwide. Set for September 28 on S-Curve Records, twelve of the 14 songs on 'Mind, Body & Soul' were written or co-written by Joss.
'The Soul Sessions' was one of the breakout releases of 2003. This collection of deep soul covers heralded a rebirth of the genre, and it has left anticipation running high for an album of original Joss material.
'Mind, Body & Soul' finds Joss further redefining the idea of modern soul, with a voice - and a pen - that are utterly contemporary, yet rooted in the old school. Whether mining a deep well of emotion for ballads such as "Right To Be Wrong," and "Jet Lag" (both co-written with 70s soul diva Betty Wright), or "Spoiled" (co-written with Motown legend Lamont Dozier), strutting to a funky clavinet riff on the album's first single "You Had Me," (also co-written with Wright, and British songwriter Eg White), working with a gospel choir on the inspirational 'Security," or cleverly sampling a rare groove classic by Young-Holt Unlimited on "Don't Cha Wanna Ride," before segueing directly into "Less is More" an ice-cold reggae jam - every song on 'Mind, Body & Soul' stands on its own, and the sum is as unforgettable as its parts.
Like its predecessor, 'Mind, Body & Soul' was co-produced by S-Curve Records president Steve Greenberg, Wright, and studio whiz Michael Mangini. The album was recorded at Mangini's Mojo Studios in NYC, and at the soul mecca Criteria Studios in Miami. Many of the Miami-based soul legends who helped make 'The Soul Sessions' such a hot platter - Betty Wright, Latimore, Little Beaver, Timmy Thomas - returned to the studio this time around. Scan the album notes and you'll find that, in addition to Wright and Dozier, hip-hop trailblazer Salaam Remi (Kurtis Blow, The Fugees), and Portishead singer Beth Gibbons also get co-writing credits, among others. Elsewhere, vocalist/keyboardist Angie Stone, guitarist Nile Rodgers, and Roots drummer ?uestlove all leave their mark.
For an album that initially wasn't even planned for release, 'The Soul Sessions' outstripped all expectations. Fully 10 months after it hit stores 'Sessions' is still on the Billboard Top 200, and the intervening months have seen a string of highlights for Joss, including performances at a tribute to James Brown at Washington DC's Kennedy Center in December '03, Elton John's annual Oscar Party in LA in February, and the VH1 Divas concert in Las Vegas in April. 'Mind, Body & Soul' suggests we haven't seen anything yet.
