Created over the course of four years in far-flung locations, Water for Your Soul is Joss Stone’s seventh studio album — the follow-up to The Soul Sessions, Vol. 2. The singer/songwriter incorporates some reggae in her soul-rooted material, as encouraged by SuperHeavy bandmate Damian Marley; “The Answer” was co-written by the great Dennis Bovell. Stone also draws from Indian and Irish sounds, though she claims hip-hop is the album’s rhythmic “backbone.” The album is led by “Stuck on You,” a rustic belter closer to folk-blues.
Expected Release: Jul 31, 2015
