Joss Stone
Track 03: Every Time I Turn Around 

Joss Stone wrote and recorded her new album, 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, Sheila E. Raphael Saadiq, rapper Nas and saxophonist David Sanborn.

The 22-year-old Devon, England-born Stone has sold more than eight million albums worldwide, and been nominated for four Grammy Awards and three Brit Awards. She is known for a string of memorable live performances, including a tribute to Janis Joplin with Melissa Etheridge at the Grammy’s in 2005, an appearance at the Super Bowl half-time show with Stevie Wonder, John Legend, and India Arie in 2006, and the Concert for Diana at Wembley Stadium in London in 2007. 

NCIS: The Official TV Soundtrack – Vol. 2 features a brand-new track from Joss Stone, the soulful “Every Time I Turn Around,” which will be featured on a season 7 episode of NCIS.
