Norah Jones "Little Broken Hearts" due May 1
Grammy winning singer-songwriter, Norah Jones will release her new album Little Broken Hearts on May 1. The set is produced by Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton) and features 12 original songs co-written by Jones and Burton. Jones says she was inspired to create the cover art for the project by the vintage movie posters that hung in 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 made the record. It’s a great visual." Norah is also celebrating the tenth anniversary of the release of her Grammy Award winning debut album Come Away With Me. The album just became the #10 best-selling album of the Soundscan era, selling over 25 million copies worldwide. Jones will tour Europe and the U.S. this summer.
