The Art Of Love & War, in stores on October 16th on the reactivated iconic Stax Records label, channels the best of the classic tradition while looking forward and taking the genre to new places. Stone exclaims,
This is a reflection of where I am both mentally and spiritually and what I feel I’ve attained at this point in my life.
The CD was recorded in its entirety at Marvin’s Room, Marvin Gaye’s former studio on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles and the one-woman dynamo performed, co-produced, and wrote over 90% of the material.
The Art of Love & War is a musical distillation of everything that Angie has been through and has learned throughout her stellar career. “Baby” featuring R&B/soul/gospel great Betty Wright and production by Co-T, has an irresistible groove, and is the first single to radio. Renowned production team DOA worked with Angie on the introspective ballad “Reasons.” Album openers, “Take Everything In” and “Here We Go” are two of six standout tracks produced by the acclaimed Jonathan Richmond. The anthemic “My People” with special guest James Ingram, was selected by Essence Publisher, Susan Taylor, as the theme song for last month’s Essence Festival’s return to New Orleans.
I think my personal favorite is ‘Happy Being Me.’ I guess that title gives you a clue about how I’m feeling right now.
