Joss Stone offered her house for releasing her album
The `Super Duper Love` singer was determined to release `Colour Me Free`, despite her label EMI believing it wasn`t commercial enough to be a success, and proposed the deal in order to ensure she could see the project through.
She said: "It got to the point where I said, `Take my house and release the record`. The thing is, I just made an album and I wanted people to like it. I did not think anything of it. Why did it have to be a big deal? Why does it have to focus on being a number one song F**k that, I can`t be bothered."
EMI eventually agreed to release `Colour Me Free`, but refused to release any of their budget to promote the release. Despite the setbacks, Joss remains positive about her chances of the LP doing well.
She added: "EMI were running a business. It`s not about you having lovely time in the studio- so it`s got a low budget? That`s fine by me. I just wanted to have artistic freedom. I`m tired of all the silliness.
"We will cross our fingers and see what we can muster. We`ll maybe see what we can do ourselves."
