For over 30 years, singer Rickie Lee Jones has drawn critical acclaim for her ability to combine original songs with rousing covers. On her new album, the virtuosic performer has decided to set aside her songwriting hat for a bit. Set for release on September 18th, The Devil You Know will instead feature Jones' interpretation of songs by Neil Young, Van Morrison, the Rolling Stones and other rock legends.
According to Jones, the artistic decision has helped her rediscover her classic voice – as well as the songs themselves.
"This record takes me to a new place in my work, my art," the singer told Rolling Stone. "I've found another voice; it's a quieter one, older, perhaps, but more likely younger than I've ever been. [The songs] are like new again, and no one has ever heard them." more»
