Angie Stone to Release "Rich Girl" on Sept. 25

Soul singer/songwriter Angie Stone will release Rich Girl via SRR Records on September 25.
The album is a triumphant return to what Stone does best and that's writing deeply soulful and intimate songs then delivering them with a voice so powerful and pure.
"I wrote this album from a real place," says Stone. "It's not about money, it's about being rich in everything you do, in your spirit, your purpose and your giving to others. And because I was able to really write for, and in, my own voice this time, I could really sing these new songs with authenticity, something I haven't been able to do in a long time."
She continued, "I spent a lot of time over the past few years working with other people, writing with them, working with producer. And then one day I realized that while I was doing everything I could to help them succeed and watching them grow, I was losing pieces of myself in the process. I shaved a lot of my originality off when merging with so many other people. Fans weren't getting Angie Stone. They were getting Angie and so-and-so. I knew I had to get back to my own music and skills. It's time for Angie to do Angie."
We're glad we NOW get the real Angie Stone!
