Joni Mitchell to Release New Album on Starbucks Label

Following on the success of Paul McCartney's 'Memory Almost Full' album, released on Starbucks' Hear Music label, Joni Mitchell will issue her upcoming long-player as the second album on the ubiquitous coffee chain's new musical outlet. The esteemed Canadian singer-songwriter's impending record, to be called 'Shine,' will be Mitchell's first collection of new material since 1998's 'Taming the Tiger.'

Mitchell has called the LP, currently scheduled for a late September release, "as serious a work as I've ever done." The 10 songs on 'Shine,' which promise to touch upon political, environmental and theological themes, will include a remake of one of her most famous songs, 'Big Yellow Taxi,' as well as the new 'If,' based on the Rudyard Kipling poem.
