Kismet (which means destiny), is the first album by musician Jesca Hoop on September 17, 2007 through RED Ink Records.[1] The song 'Love and Love Again is a co-write with David Baerwald while Stewart Copeland guests on the song 'Seeds Of Wonder'. The song 'Intelligentactile 101' was released prior to the album.[2] Many of the songs were "quite old", and Hoop cited the song, “Out the Back Door,” (a combination of early '20s Jazz and Hip/Hop) which she "wrote years ago, and then the movie, Idlewild, came out and it kind of reinforced my concept in that arena".[3]
