With the release of her fourth album (Colour Me Free) coming up tomorrow, 10.21, there isn’t a better way to generate buzz than by taking a jab at your own record label in the form of a song – even better, the first single off the new album.  Joss Stone belts about not being trusted or supported while she does what she loves most – and if you didn’t quite get who she’s referring to, then listen to the last few seconds of the song.  She spells it out for you: “Free me…E-M-I.” 

In a recent interview, she shared that there was a battle over the album cover – EMI thought it was offensive and has released the album with two different album covers  – the plain cover will be released in certain countries.



And if you find it hard to follow me
If I loose you in my creative stream
Than you only got to raise your eyes
And see me fly

Don’t tell me that I won’t
I will
Don’t tell me that I’m not
I am
Don’t tell me that my master plan
Ain’t coming through

Don’t tell me that I won’t
I will

    Sooooo good — Joss has always been a bit of a disappointment to me – never really materialized as the artist I hoped she would – yet whenever she performed live, she totally captivated me. Perhaps label restraint was one of the reasons? Not sure, either way, I love a good artist/label feud.
