James Taylor suggests Joni Mitchell is "coming back" with new music

James Taylor has suggested in a recent interview that his longtime friend and collaborator, Joni Mitchell is “coming back” with new music soon.

The iconic folk singer has been resting since she suffered a debilitating brain aneurysm in March 2015. However later that year Mitchell’s camp revealed the singer was “walking, talking and painting” and now it appears she may soon be singing too.

Friend and collaborator, Taylor was speaking with the Guardian and was reflecting on their shared journey when he revealed the pair had recently got back in touch.

“We’ve continued to have a friendship and, well, I recently sort of re-engaged with Joni, and that’s been wonderful,” Taylor said. “She came to a show of mine recently, at the Hollywood Bowl, which was an unusual thing for her to do.”

Taylor then apparently revealed the singer’s return saying: “She’s recovering, she’s coming back – which is an amazing thing to be able to do – and I wonder what she has to tell us about that…”

“I think she’s coming back musically…” Taylor concluded. “It’s amazing to see her come back to the surface.” We are hoping that Taylor is right anf the legendary Joni Mitchell is making a courageous return to music.
