Joss Stone Traces Her Evolution on 'Soul Sessions Volume 2'
'It's more fun for me now than it was then'

On July 31st, U.K. singer-songwriter Joss Stone will deliver The Soul Sessions Volume 2, a sequel to her her 2003 debut covers LP featuring her own renditions of songs by everyone from the Chi-Lites to Broken Bells. During a recent visit to Rolling Stone's studio, Stone reflected on her growth since her first album and how working on Volume 2 was quite different than the first time around.

"I didn't really know what I was doing, so here I am now ten years later doing The Soul Sessions and it was completely different," said Stone. Though recording the first Soul Sessions was a little more straightforward, Stone admitted her new, looser style had a big influence on the recordings. "Now, I'm kind of a little bit more spontaneous. I like to get everyone together and we just basically have a jam, and have a little laugh, play some music," she said. "The first one, I turned up and I sang as well as I could, which really wasn't that well at that point!"

The Soul Sessions Volume 2 contains covers of the Rolling Stones, Broken Bells, Womack and Womack, and more.
