It’s been less than a year since ANGIE STONE treated us to her last album, ‘Dream’. Now her people tell us there’s another new one on the way… ‘Covered In Soul’, a collection of covers of tunes that influenced her and moulded her unique sound and style over the years.

Amongst the selected tunes are The Undisputed Truth’s ‘Smiling Faces Sometimes’ and The Five Stairsteps’ ‘Ooh Child.’ There’s also Angie’s take on Hot Chocolate’s ‘Everyone’s A Winner” and Phil Collins’ ‘In the Air Tonight.’ Reggae’s represented too with versions of UB 40’s’ Red Red Wine’ (written by Neill Diamond, of course)) and a look Bob Marley and the Wailers’ 1978 ‘Is This Love.’

Oddly (maybe?) Ms Stone also “covers” a selection of her own songs with re-recordings of ‘Brotha’, ‘Wish I Didn’t Miss You’ and ‘Baby’… we’ll bring you a full review just as soon as we have our copy.
