About Spirit

Jewel’s second studio album, Spirit, released in 1998, showcased a more mature sound from the young folk singer. The album features a blend of folk, pop, and rock, with introspective lyrics that touch on themes of love, loss, and self-discovery.

The album’s lead single, “Hands,” was a commercial success, charting high on the Billboard Hot 100 and earning Jewel a Grammy nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. Other notable tracks on the album include “Down So Long,” “Fat Boy,” and “What’s Simple Is True.”

Spirit is often regarded as one of Jewel’s strongest albums, showcasing her songwriting talents and vocal abilities.

Spirit is a solid album that still holds up today as a testament to Jewel’s talent and versatility as an artist.
