Jewel Recording 'Pieces'-Inspired Album

Jewel talks with about recording a companion pieces to 1995's "Pieces of You".

"What's difficult with this record is that when I made 'Pieces of You' I didn't know about the business," says Jewel, who's turned down some recent label offers and is planning to release the new album herself. "I didn't know about radio, what was commercial, what was country or pop. I was just myself. So what I've been making myself do is forget everything I know and not think about genres. I don't want to think about singles and don't want to do anything that's smart business. I want to forget it all and make a record that is really pure and is me. I'm just going to make what's in my soul. I'm in a position to do that, so I'd be an idiot not to do that."
