Joni Mitchell: The Heartbreak and Vulnerability Behind Her Iconic ‘Blue’ Album

Joni Mitchell composed and sang all of the songs on Blue, on which she came into her own as an artist. The 1971 album spotlighted her musical genius, became her first album to sell more than a million copies, and earned admirers ranging from Bob Dylan and Prince to Taylor Swift. Per Mitchell, Blue was “probably the purest emotional record that I will ever make in my life.” She found inspiration for the album in a wellspring of emotions, drawing on everything from romantic entanglements to her decision to put a child up for adoption.
