Tweet (no affiliation with Twitter)?! Where have you been all my life/ since Oops (Oh My)? Ok, well, she has released something since then (It’s Me Again), but I kinda missed out on that one. I am not missing the next album, Simply Tweet, set to drop later this year. I know Tweet is considered by many to be a one-hit-wonder but I actually had that first album (Southern Hummingbird) and remember it being kind of amazingly cray. Really pumped about her new music and Joss Stone’s as well. I hadn’t heard of Cloudeater until five minutes ago but I have heard of Jay-Z and he debuted their new track on his blog, Life + Times. Let’s check it all out!
Joss Stone: Give More Power To The People (The Chi-Lites cover)
Joss Stone’s upcoming album is currently titled The Soul Sessions Volume 2, and her first single (dropping in the next few weeks) is a cover of indie rock band Broken Bells’s The High Road.
Cloudeater feat. Wale: Faces
Cloudeater is described as a band where “trip-hop and post-industrial rock converge with blue-eyed soul” (thank you, Creative Loafing Atlanta). Enjoy :)
Thoughts on the new music? I’m excited for Tweet, but couldn’t help noticing that the track sounded a helluva lot like the songs on her first album (which came out in 2002). Joss Stone’s voice is insane and I can’t wait to hear more covers from her, although I wonder if any original music is forthcoming. Cloudeater– great name. And great idea teaming up with Wale; I think they’ve worked together before on his album and I’m excited to see what they have popping off next.
Anybody else miss Tweet? No?
