First Sir Paul took the proverbial plunge into a hot cup of joe, and now, Joni Mitchell joins him in the roster of two as an artist also signed to the Starbucks' Hear Music label. The record titled Shine (out September 24) will be the folk legend's first release since 1998. Mitchell revealed that the record is "as serious a work as I've ever done."
Ken Lombard, president of Starbucks Entertainment, said about the 63-year-old Canadian songstress, "Joni's voice, both in the physical and lyrical sense, is as powerful as ever. In addition to her extraordinary songwriting ability, she is a Renaissance artist in every sense and we are honoured to release this timely and exceptionally moving work."
