Shine (Joni Mitchell Album)
Shine is the nineteenth and final studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell and was released on September 25, 2007 by Starbucks' Hear Music. It was the singer-songwriter's first album of new songs in nine years, after 1998's Taming the Tiger.
Joni Mitchell, who said she was retiring from music several years ago, signed a two-album contract with Starbucks' Hear Music that began with the release of Shine. The 10-track CD "feels like the return of Joni the storyteller," said Ken Lombard, the president of Starbucks Entertainment who also oversees Hear Music.
In the United States, the album sold about 40,000 copies in its first week, debuting at number 14 on the Billboard 200 chart; this was Mitchell's best peak position in America since 1976's Hejira. Shine also peaked at #36 in the UK charts, making it Mitchell's first Top 40 album in the UK since 1991. In its first week on sale, Shine sold around 60,000 copies worldwide and as of December 2007, it has sold over 170,000 copies in the U.S.A.
