Joss Stone is delving deeper into R&B and soul on her new, as-yet-untitled album, due March 6 via Virgin, Billboard.com has learned. The set was produced by Raphael Saadiq, whose resume includes Angie Stone, Jill Scott, Kelis and the Grammy-winning Erykah Badu and Common duet, "Love of My Life."

The 19-year-old Stone hit Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas to record the album, which will feature such tracks as "Headturner," "Tell Me What We're Gonna Do Now," "Music," "Tell Me 'Bout It," "Nothing Better Than (The iPod Song)" and "I Wish I Never Met You."

It's the follow-up to 2004's "Mind, Body & Soul," which debuted at No. 11 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 1.2 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Meanwhile, Stone will make her big-screen debut in the fantasy film "Eragon," which opens Dec. 15 in U.S. theaters. Based on the novel of the same name by Christopher Paolini, it also stars Jeremy Irons and John Malkovich.

Raphael Saadiq is a hot ass mess but his production and musical abilities are off the chain so this will be good, I'm sure. LOL @ "The iPod Song". These R&B titles are just getting dumber and dumber.
