Andre Cymone "The Stone"

Andre Cymone "The Stone"

Vinyl LP - $12.60

 The Stone marks a stunning creative rebirth for veteran singer/songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist Andre Cymone, Delivering eleven riveting original songs that add an exciting-and unexpected-chapter to the musical legacy Cymone built. Cymone's catchy, punchy new tunes merge raw, muscular rock 'n' roll with insistent hooks and sharp, insightful lyrics that tap into timeless human truths while exploring a range of social and political concerns.  Even if he'd never returned to active duty to make The Stone, Cymone's place in the musical canon would be assured.  His rich musical history encompasses three much-loved solo albums (Livin' in the New Wave, Survivin' in the '80s and AC) and a prolific career as hitmaking producer (Jody Watley, Tom Jones, Adam Ant), as well as a long running collaboration with Prince, during which Cymone emerged as one of the architects of the revolutionary Minneapolis sound that permanently changed the face of popular music in the '80s.  In recording the new album, Cymone embraced a more basic, direct musical vocabulary than the one he'd employed with his earlier work, emphasizing the energy and immediacy of live performance by cutting the tracks live in the studio.  The resulting album is both expansive and intimate, reflecting the remarkable musical and personal journey that's brought Andre Cymone from his influential early days to his current creative mission.
