The amazing Grace Jones has finally, after almost 20 years, released a new album called Hurricane. And it is hard to believe, watching her live performance, that she is 60. It is a shame the new album can’t be downloaded from iTunes or Amazon.com. Few here across the pond will pay $19 for an imported CD, so I hope she will get an MP3 distribution deal over here soon.
I always enjoyed her zany, edgy persona. Her second new single Williams’ Blood is autobiographical and the studio version ranks up there for me with her gorgeous singing on La Vie en Rose and her unforgettable take on Demolition Man.
