Overview

Joss Stone wrote and recorded Colour Me Free at Mama Stone's, the live music venue that her mother runs in Wellington, England. She co-produced the album herself, along with producer/songwriters Jonathan Shorten and Conner Reeves, who also worked on Stone's 2004 platinum-certified album, Mind, Body & Soul.

"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. 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."
