Win a pair of VIP tickets to the sold-out Norah Jones show at Summerstage on July 3rd by entering on our app! Jones will be performing her new album, Little Broken Hearts, featuring the production help of Danger Mouse.
Norah Jones has expanded her sound in thrilling and characteristically subtle ways. Twelve darkly luminous songs. Twelve little broken hearts. Each an exploration of wounded emotions from various perspectives that invariably leads to a place of beauty and uplift.
Jones had known Danger Mouse, aka Brian Burton, since he called her in 2008 to contribute vocals to ROME, his valentine to classic Italian film score music. “I’ve always known about Norah’s voice,” says Burton, “and it was in my mind when doing the parts for ROME. We didn’t really talk about many people, but Norah was the first person we went to. She’s such a great singer.”
After those sessions Jones asked if they could work together again, and Burton suggested collaborating on something dark and moody someday. “I remember saying to myself that wasn’t necessarily the record I’m trying to make right now,” Jones recalls, laughing. “But I knew I wanted to do something with him – he has this terrific energy in the studio, and I was open to trying anything.”
