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. 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 hit making 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. Having sold millions of albums, Cymone returns from a 27 year hiatus with the Stone and is set to tour nationally in 2014 as well as play key musical festivals worldwide. The vinyl component contains a digital download card.
