Time spent in Jamaica, a new marriage and a deal with Verve are the driving factors for Brazilian vocalist Bebel Gilberto's fourth record, "All In One." The twelve song set - due September 29 - features a host of different producers, including Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen), the Brazilian Girls' keyboardist Didi Gutman, the Dust Brothers' John King and Daniel Jobim, grandson of legendary Brazilian musician Antonio Carlos Jobim.
Gilberto, the daughter of famed bossa nova king Joao Gilberto, burst onto the scene with her warm, electronica fused debut, 2000's "Tanto Tempo," which has sold 309,000 according to Nielsen SoundScan. Since then, she's expanded her musical ranges, drawing on jazz, soul and pop traditions, yet never forgetting her Brazilian roots. "All In One" seems to be an ominous title, as it finds her blending all of these styles into one record.
Like her past albums, most of "All In One" is sung in Portuguese, but finds her treading on many universal themes. "I talk about nature, love, life moments," Gilberto tells Billboard.com. "Life is hard, sometimes it's wonderful. We had this beautiful marriage with Verve and my long relationships with everyone on this record - I think that adds a lot, too."
