REVIEW album Jones New Skin

Nothing To Shed Here

New Skin


'New Skin' the flawless debut album by Jones is seamless, classic, upbeat and melodic... just a tiny few adjectives you can use to describe this album and the wonderful voice of Jones who until about 12 months ago was unheard of.

Then along came Jools Holland and since then Jones has been thrust forward faster than a rocket! Her voice changes from intimate to sharp and soaring with the ease of an Eagle on take off.

'New Skin' opens with "Rainbow" which puts Jones' voice through its paces and this continues into "Indulge" and "Hoops".

"Out of This World" should be a summer anthem all year round with its sultry summer soul sound thanks to some wonderful production from Honne (to name just one). There are many other collaborations across the album including Lana Del Rey, Justin Parker, Savages producer and xx mixer Rodaidh McDonald, Sam Smith co-writer Tourist, Two Inch Punch, XO, Oceaan and the enigmatic A.K. Paul and as mentioned before HONNE.

Overall an absolute must have for any serious collector whatever genre you follow, this album and the wonderful voice of Jones leaves you ultimately wanting more
