Known as one of the few teen singers who actually has a voice worth mentioning, Joss Stone is preparing to unleash her third release upon the world. This time around Stone is putting her first ever DVD out, which has been titled 'Mind, Body & Soul Sessions: Live In New York City'. Set to hit stores on December 13th, the disc features a 13 song performance from the artist.
The concert footage included on 'Mind, Body & Soul Sessions' was taken from a sold-out performance at the Irving Plaza in New York on September 9th, 2004. There are tracks from both of Stone's records: 'The Soul Sessions' and 'Mind, Body & Soul', her most recent effort. In addition to the live music, the DVD also contains all of Stone's videos, a mini documentary of her tour, and outtakes which didn't make it onto the final version of the concert.
Although Stone was originally intended to enter the same market as the Britneys and Jessicas of the world, her musical life took a different turn. Possessing a deep, throaty voice more suited to a middle-aged black woman than a 16-year-old Welsh girl, Stone's path was turned towards soul music. Her first release, 'The Soul Sessions' EP, was a 10-track affair featuring covers, including a version of The White Stripes 'Fell In Love With A Girl'.
On her full-length album 'Mind, Body & Soul' (released this September), the follow-up to 'The Soul Sessions' EP, Stone tried her own hand at songwriting. Twelve of the fourteen tracks on the record were written or co-written by the singer, including current single 'You Had Me'.
