Norah Jones Sets To Release New CD "Little Broken Heart"


Jazz-pop siren Norah Jones has set to release Little Broken Hearts through Polyeast Records, her stunning new album produced by Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton). The 12-track album features the gently rolling first single "Happy Hills".

Little Broken Hearts, which features original songs co-written by Jones and Danger Mouse, is the fascinating next step in the artistic evolution of one of the most intriguing singers to have emerged in the past decade. Together they have married their highly personal styles to create an entirely new sound.

Jones Drew the inspiration for the album cover from the vintage movie posters that adorn Burton's Los Angeles studio. "Brian has this great collection of Russ Meyer posters in his studio, " explains Jones, "and this particular one, called Mudhoney, was right over the couch where I sat every day. I always was looking at it and thinking 'that's so cool I want to look like her!' I remember staring at the poster the whole time we the record. It's a great visual ".


The duo reconvened in Danger Mouse's Los Angeles studio this past fall to finish what they had begun. The songs were all built from the ground up in the studio, with the Jones and Danger Mouse sharing all the songwriting credits and performing the majority of the instrumental parts; Jones on piano, Keyboards, bass, and guitar, and Danger Mouse contributing drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, and string arrangements


Jones first emerged on the world stage 10 years ago this month with the February 2002 release of Come Away With Me, her self-described “moody little record” that introduced a singular new voice and grew into a global phenomenon, sweeping the 2003 Grammy Awards and signaling a paradigm shift away from the prevailing synthetic pop music of the time. Come Away With Me has just become the #10 best-selling album of the Soundscan era. The album has sold 25 million copies worldwide.



Since then, Jones has released three more critically acclaimed and commercially successful solo albums—Feels Like Home (2004), Not Too Late (2007), and The Fall (2009)—as well as two albums with her country collective The Little Willies. The 2010 compilation …Featuring Norah Jones showed her to possess an incredibly versatile voice by collecting her collaborations with artists as diverse as Willie Nelson, Outkast, Herbie Hancock, and Foo Fighters. Jones previously collaborated with Danger Mouse on his acclaimed 2011 album ROME, a valentine to classic Italian film score music that also featured Jack White.

American Songwriter Magazine says “She reteams with Burton for her fifth solo album, Little Broken Hearts, which may be the most dramatic and rewarding departure she’s made in her career. Burton plies an imaginative panoply of ‘60s elements – French pop, psych rock, and soundtrack compositions.”
