Joss Stone has picked up a release date for her fourth studio album, “Colour Me Free”. Set to be released via Virgin in October, Stone’s “Colour Me Free” will be made available exclusively through Target in the U.S., while the digital version will be sold exclusively through iTunes. “I woke up one morning and wanted to make an album,” Stone says. “It’s very, very raw – basically a bunch of musicians, writers, and myself just jamming. Led by the single “Free Me,” Stone calls the forthcoming album a solid representation of where she is now as an artist. “The album was not dictated or forced. It was an organic process where each musician was given the freedom to create their sound. It’s an honest and accurate representation of where I am as an artist and person right now. I am really proud of the music and excited to have people hear the songs.” An eclectic mix of pop, soul, R&B, funk, hip-hop, and gospel sounds, “Colour Me Free” features a host of guest artists, including Jeff Beck and Sheila E. on “Parallel Lines,” Raphael Saadiq (who produced her 2007 gold-certified album Introducing Joss Stone) on “Big Ole Game,” rapper Nas on “Governmentalist,” and saxophonist David Sanborn on “I Believe It To My Soul.” “Colour Me Free” arrives at U.S. Target stores and digital retailers October 20. The album will be released internationally November 2.
