NEW MUSIC: JOSS STONE | NEVER FORGET MY LOVE
The last we heard from singer Joss Stone was with her one-off single "Walk With Me." Now, nearly a year later, the singer is ready to embark on her new musical journey as she puts together her new album, "Never Forget My Love," her first album in seven years since the 2015 “Water for Your Soul.” To whet our appetites for what's to come, the singer has released the set's title track as its lead single and given us a flashy video to accompany it. "Never Forget My Love" is a smoky, soulful number that throws back to the sound she took on early in her career. Co-written with collaborator Dave Stewart, the song starts with a thick bass line, strings and guitar that set the stage for what's to come. Joss then comes into complete focus with a strong voice as she sings of a love that has left its mark. Her remembrances lead up to the horn-soaked chorus as Joss sends a message to her lover. She takes a simple approach to the video, which prominently features her in a low-cut, sparkly sequined jumpsuit as she sings. Also incorporated are set pieces featuring a string trio, horn players and dancers as they perform to the track. Though simple in appearance, it manages to capture the song's essence while showing what this new era will look like for Joss Stone. The song will appear on her upcoming eighth studio album, which will be released in 2022. Also, Joss will embark on a tour in support of the forthcoming album with fellow songstress Corinne Bailey Rae in 2022.
