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

The frontman (for Portland-based band Hockey) is slowly becoming my new idol in life.  This band will be all the buzz in a few months – mark my words.

Aside from their Lollapalooza gig on August 7th, there are no other US dates scheduled.  Their European tour goes through October, then I’m hoping EMI will place some marketing effort behind these guys stateside…

Oh, and I need a headband STAT.


Look out!
Cause I’m just too fake for the world
I know it’s just a game to me
I’m just too fake you see
I wish i didn’t have to be but watch out
I got too much soul for the world
It’s breaking my heart in two
I got too much soul for you
I don’t like it but it’s true
