The iconic diva's 2008 comeback, now with added dub versions. How long has Grace Jones been away from the music industry? Well, the single from her last album was produced by C&C Music Factory. Yes, it has been a long time, but then again, Ms. Jones has always done things on her own time. Hurricane was released in Europe in 2008. It has finally been picked up for North American release. As an added incentive, a disc of dub versions of each of the album's...
Singer/actress/model/gay icon Grace Jones put out an album in 2008, but a physical release never reached U.S. shores, despite it producing hits overseas and plenty of critical praise. Her shows in Los Angeles and New York in 2009 were also well received. For whatever reason, perhaps the rise of Lady Gaga, Hurricane will now become Jones' first U.S. release in 22 years, following 19892s Bulletproof Heart . Hurricane , produced by Jones and Ivor Guest, comes out September 6th via [PIAS] America . It features such guests as Brian Eno, [...]
Originally posted 6/26/09 I feel a strange mix of sadness and relief at the death of Michael Jackson . It's sad to see a man die prematurely, whether he's an international star or the guy next door. But, much sadder is the fact Michael Jackson would never have regained the respect of popular culture had he lived 100 years. Two remarkable notes from NPR this afternoon: first) a collage of people from places as diverse as Beijing, London and Nigeria, all singing Michael Jackson songs and two) the amazing financial impact the death of one person [...]
Grace Jones - Hurricane [Wall Of Sound] -- Pull Up To The Bumper Baby --
Grace Jones is back. I have a new found respect for this woman. Anybody that can remain relevant for over 30 years tends to have that impact on me. She is beyond being a fashion icon, musician, actress, a muse for others. She is all of these. Her new album Hurricane is said to be her most personal one yet. I found that to be such an interesting comment considering I always viewed her as a stone cold statuesque figure that is know more for [...]
Saw the 'Corporate Cannibal' video as the introduction to Grace's incredible performance a t this year s Meltdown festival, seems to be all over the web, but worthy of another post.

A luglio vi avevamo annunciato il ritorno di Grace Jones e ora, con qualche giorno di ritardo rispetto ai primi comunicati, arriva finalmente il nuovo disco "Hurricane", in uscita nei nostri negozi il 7 novembre. L'anteprima delle canzoni è stata affidata a Radio Capital che le farà ascoltare da lunedì pomeriggio per tutta la settimana. Intanto è uscito da un po' il video del primo singolo "Corporate Cannibal" che non vi avevamo ancora mostrato, lo trovate dopo il salto. Un video in un inquietante, deformato, ossessivo bianco e nero per un brano tutt'altro che [...]
- Frequenze Preview - Riflettendo sulla lista dei migliori dieci album del 2008 presto la difficoltà si tramuta in imbarazzo. Personalmente il ventaglio di candidati è povero come mai ed inevitabilmente si dovrà forzare qualche scelta. Se non altro il 2008 verrà ricordato - seppur con differenti fortune - come l'anno dei ritorni eccellenti. A memoria (intergrate se ometto) ricordiamo quello ottimo dei Portishead , David Holmes , Yoko Ono , Tricky , Metallica [...]
Over the past few months, a figure so dominant and iconic has returned to the forefront of our social conscious. Model, actress, performer, entertainer, singer, producer, writer, the enigma that is Ms Grace Jones has firmly been reaffirming herself as the superstar she has always been. In preparation for her first album in nearly twenty years, the aptly named 'Hurricane' , Ms Jones has been performing various festivals including the cult Secret Garden Party and Lokerse Feesten in Belgium. Her one-off London Show at the Royal Festival Hall on June 19th for [...]
Grace Jones está de volta 20 anos depois do seu último disco lançado em 1989. Talvez potenciada pela moda da volta dos artistas que há 10 ou 20 anos lideravam os tops, Grace Jones regressa com "Hurricane", álbum que sai este ano e foi produzido por Ivor Guest, com participações especiais de Sly & Robbie, Brian Eno e Tricky. O disco será oficialmente lançado na festa "Secret Garden Party",
Her name has been gone from the music scene for quite some time, but this year Grace Jones is back with as much attitude as ever. Her first album since 1989, Hurricane is due out internationally at the end of October. It's preceded by the avant-garde new single "Corporate Cannibal," a haunting track (without much melody) matched by an equally strange and frightening video. Her unique stance has always been her trademark, ever since way back in her Studio 54 heyday, and shows no signs of letting up. Catch up on some of her biggest hits, including the [...]
Uups, a new Grace Jones album! After nearly 20 years the diva, icon and hardbody released a new record, produced by Sly & Robbie. And she tried to sound a bit like the recordings at the jamaican Compass Point Studio in 1980. If you don't know how it sounded back in the days, check out Grace Jones "Private Live. The Compass Point Sessions" or the highly recommended compilation "Funky Nassau. The Compass Point Story". Here is "My Jamaican Guy" for you, the 12" version, recorded at Compass Point: GRACE JONES - My Jamaican Guy (12" Version).mp3
Sarà pubblicato il 27 Ottobre il nuovo lavoro di una vera e propria icona degli anni 80. Un assaggio lo si può già gustare ascoltando il singolo Corporate Cannibal . Continua a leggere Grace Jones: il ritorno della porta il nome di Hurricane... Commenta »
The original new wave, art/disco diva Grace Jones is back and she's about to release her first album in 19 years (not including her two unreleased albums in the 90's). Hurricane , scheduled for an October 27th release, features an all-star production team led by Ivor Guest, including Brian Eno, Tricky, and Sly & Robbie. Jones made her return to the stage last month when she performed a two hour set at the Massive Attack-curated Meltdown Festival in London. The first single from the forthcoming album is the haunting and twisted "Corporate Cannibal". [...]
Its not every month that sees the return of not one, but two of the most off kilter, unique, and in my case favourite artists, namely Grace Jones and Roots Manuva. Manuva's possibly the only rapper alive who when asked to sum up the spirit of his new album would explain it thus " You got to sing like no one’s listening. You gotta fart like there’s no one there to smell it! " As for Miss Jones... well just watch the video for her new track " Corporate Cannibel " below to see that even [...]
Grace Jones, one of the fiercest femmes of all time, is set to release a new album this October. Hurricane will be her first effort in 19 years, and I must say that I'm intrigued. While this video isn't all too exciting, the song isn't half bad. I'm curious to hear what the rest of it sounds like. Even with all the distortion going on, Miss Jones is still as bold and striking as ever; a man eating machine.
New video from Grace Jones's forthcoming album 'Hurricane' released in October 2008
The legendary Grace Jones will release a new album, entitled, Hurricane , October 2008. I am so excited!!! She has recently released a video for one of her new songs, "Corporate Cannibal". The song is really hot and scary, with haunting lyrics like "I'm a man eating machine" and "I'll consume my consumer's with no sense of humor." I want to simultaneously dash to the nearest dance floor/bury myself under a huge pile of clothes in the closet. I wonder if she has been hanging out with the Ghoul [...]
I've been scared of Grace Jones since I was a kid ( Slave to the Rhythm still gives me nightmares), but I can't deny how unique her sound is. For the past thirty years, Jones has defied industry standards, infusing her own art-house style into the mix. Grace Jones returns in October with her tenth studio album, Hurricane , her first release in tenth years. Below, Grace provides a taste of the new album with a video for "Corporate Cannibal" -- creepy.
