The video for Grace Jones new song Corporate Cannibal is suitably disturbing. I'm not sure if the song or imagery really hold up for six minutes - it seems more effective as it was first used, for a background performance piece. There is going to be a rush to claim everything from the forthcoming album "brilliant" and "amazing." I'll try and use those words judiciously... or find better ones.
Another track, This Is Life, leaked a few weeks ago and it's sick in the best way. It hits you and it feels like a kiss. In fact, after you hear the song, you'll be stronger than you were moments before. Which is not, of course, hyperbole.
Now called Hurricane, the album is out 10/27 in the UK, with no word on a US release. More new song titles have been released, including The Key To Funky, William's Blood, and - haha! - Keeping Up With The Jones. Can you imagine the pressure to create her album cover? Note that there is now a GraceJonesTV channel on youtube. ____________________________________
