If the video for Joss Stone’s new single teaches us anything, it’s that her forthcoming album ‘Water For Your Soul’ is set to be a far different beast from the albums that have come before.
Inspired by her travels across the planet, the LP was co-penned by reggae musician Dennis Bovell and it’s those reggae influences that are front and centre in the lead single lifted from it, ‘The Answer’.
A highly percussive beast, ‘The Answer’ is infused with plenty of Joss’s trademark soul, including a spirited gospel choir in the choruses. The video follows suit in the feel-good factor stakes.
“Everytime we heard the song in the studio, in the car or on stage we all started dancing,” Joss says. “It’s about letting go of your worries and making the most of life. Spontaneous dancing is the best, whether you are professional or not, it makes you feel good. So dance and have a laugh!”
‘Water For Your Soul’ will be released in Australia on Friday July 31.
