Clock counts down to Rock in Rio
Joss Stone has dinner, praises Brazil and advances record
“I’m excited for Rock in Rio. In 2011 I remember how many people there were singing, smiling and even crying, it was so cool,” says Joss Stone by phone to G1.
“The difference between Brazilians and the rest of the world is the animation”, praises the singer. “It’s your rhythm,” says another voice at the bottom of the call. It’s Joss’ mother, Wendy Stoker, who was at her house. In the background there are also noises of Wendy chopping vegetables.
“My mother came to dinner. She is making lasagna and she brought wine,” explains the singer. She looks so happy that she repeats the information and starts to sing: “Thanks to Deeeus my mom is here, she’s going to make lasagna and I brought wineoo…”.
Happy and loose, Joss advances details of her eighth album, which should come out at the end of this year and be the base of the tour that will take place at Rock in Rio. She tells decided the title: “‘Never forget my love'”.
“It’s a serious record. I usually do happier things. But this one has a more serious concept, and it’s more adult than the previous ones.”
“We should release a single in early December and then the record at Christmas. It’s not a Christmas album, but I think it’s a cool time to release it.”
She says she is in the mixing stage of the record, and is playing the versions at home for her daughter, Violet, who was born earlier this year: “The songs are sad, but she listens with the biggest smile in the world”, says the new mommy Joss.
Joss Stone’s new repertoire will mark the main concert at the Sunset Stage on the 8th. The organization says it will be the day of the “sacred woman”, which will have fellow countrymen Corinne Bailey Rae, Duda Beat and Gloria Groove.
