I hope it's as good as Hurricane. Corporate Cannibal blew me when I first heard it. Amazing track.

Is she still with Wall of Sound? They did a Warner's and stuffed up her releases so badly. She did all this great promo and then you couldn't buy the single! Then, they released the William's Blood video months after the single.

I'm Not Perfect is a fantastic tune! It gets completely overlooked but I love it and the video is another epic Grace moment. I do agree that other late 80s stuff is pretty bad though like Party Girl and Love On Top of Love with that really terrible 80s sound. Love Bites is great though.

But yes, Island Life is a pretty good start but misses out some classics and Compass Point Sessions misses out the disco years. However, there are several other greatest hits compilations out there that have been put out independently but it would still be good to have a complete anthology.

Many of the original 7" edits on vinyl have never been released on CD. I'm still trying to find the edit of Warm Leatherette and Private Life as well as a few others.

It will be interesting to hear Grace Jones new music. She has always been different from other artists and is a much better singer than a lot of people give her credit for.

There was a note on her Facebook page today saying she was late again for the studio - it said, even when she's early, she's late!

Still, she's back in the studio so we may hear something soon!

I love these little tweets with Igor Guest giving insights into their recording process. Would be so cool to see Madonna do something like that, and actually focus on getting into the musical process again

She's also preparing a memoir.

You mean autobiography?

When will it be out? I think her life and career are very interesting, but I didn't find a lot about her on the internet.

Really? I can't wait. She is such an amazing performer and she must have lead one hell of a life - studio 54 etc.

It's not a new album but an unreleased Grace Jones track from the Nightclubbing album has surfaced. It's a cover of a Gary Numan song and it's on the new Record Store Day Deluxe edition release that will feature a bonus CD of remixes and two new tracks!

'Me! I Disconnect From You' is bloody brilliant! I see from the YouTube clip it's a Radio Edit ... I wonder if it's going to be a single release to tie in with 'Nightclubbing'?

Grace has a memoir due for release this year. Her priorities are divided.
