Singer Joss Stone was so desperate to release her album, ‘Colour Me Free’, that she actually offered her house to the record company to pay for putting her record out. Read more on this story below.
The ‘Super Duper Love’ singer wanted her album ‘Colour Me Free’ released, but her label EMI felt it wasn’t commercial enough to sell so Joss came up with her own plan.
She said: “It got to the point where I said, ‘Take my house and release the record’. The thing is, I just made an album and I wanted people to like it. I did not think anything of it. Why did it have to be a big deal? Why does it have to focus on being a number one song? F**k that, I can’t be bothered.”
EMI finally agreed to release ‘Colour Me Free’, but said they would not promote the release.
But Joss is positive that her album will do well.
She added: “EMI were running a business. It’s not about you having a lovely time in the studio… so it’s got a low budget? That’s fine by me. I just wanted to have artistic freedom. I’m tired of all the silliness.
“We will cross our fingers and see what we can muster. We’ll maybe see what we can do ourselves.”
