In a recent interview with the Sunday Times, Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell not only said she's given up on music in general, but also claimed that she was a better musician than Bob Dylan. “I am much more original musically," Mitchell explained, "and a much more original thinker.”

The singer, who just released her four-disc collection today (Nov. 24), 'Love Has Many Faces,' also went on to say, "Music is over for me, pretty much. I can’t sing: I don’t want to. I want to paint, and I want to write. I can’t tour, I can’t travel, I’m sick; I can fly two flights a year. I’m old. You have to know when to give up.” She also touched on her disdain for being considered part of the "hippie generation" and the challenges of being a woman in a male-dominant industry.

'Love Has Many Faces' features a landmark career-spanning set of 53 newly remastered songs, which she claims evokes her vision of love. The collection is available now via Elektra. Her last original studio album was 2007's 'Shine.'
