About this album

Muse is the third album by Grace Jones, and was released in 1979. It was the last album of her disco trilogy with Tom Moulton, which began in 1977 with debut Portfolio. The first side of the album is a continuous medley of four songs, joined by a narrative about someone who has sinned. The second side, however, consists of disco songs with no relation to one another. All album art, including the cover image, is by Richard Bernstein. The track “I’ll Find My Way To You” was originally featured in 1976 Italian movie Quelli della calibro 38 (international title Colt 38 Special Squad) in which Jones plays a club singer, the original version along with a song called “I Still Get The Blues” were included on the soundtrack album produced by composer Stelvio Cipriani. Jones re-recorded “I’ll Find My Way To You” three years later with Tom Moulton for album Muse. Icelandic keyboardist Thor Baldursson who arranged most of the album and also sings duet with Grace on the track “Suffer” had previously worked in Munich Germany with disco stars such as Silver Convention, Boney M., Donna Summer, Amanda Lear and Giorgio Moroder.

Muse was released in the year of the “anti-disco backlash” and both the album and its double A-side single “On Your Knees”/”Don’t Mess With The Messer” were largely overlooked by the record buying public at the time and is generally believed to be Grace Jones’ “lost album”.
