Released:
Label: Naïve
With its sprightly and rockin' blues rhythms, Pour Une Âme Souveraine is Meshell Ndegeocello's most optimistic and accessible album in years. She creates a poppy highlife beat for "Suzanne," writes a driving folk gospel rhythm as Toshi Reagon takes over "House of the Rising Sun," makes a haunting swirl of keyboards and guitars for "See Line Woman," and breathes lustily while changing the pronoun on "Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair" from "he" to "she." Throughout, Ndegeocello consistently re-imagines Simone's work while staying true to her idol's iconoclastic spirit.
