Norah Jones announces new album Day Breaks
Norah Jones has announced full details of her new album, which is to be titled Day Breaks.
The album is Jones' first for four years and the sixth of her career. It will be released on October 6th and is available to pre-order on the right-hand side of the page.
The LP is a return to the jazzier roots of Jones' hugely successful Come Away With Me album and sees her collaborating with saxophonist Wayne Shorter, organist Dr. Lonnie Smith, and drummer Brian Blade. There are nine original songs as well as covers of tracks from Horace Silver, Duke Ellington and Neil Young.
She said of the album: "This new album feels full circle because I'm going back to my early influences. After the first record, I drifted away from the piano a little bit. I still played it, but was more inspired to write on guitar. I really loved playing piano on this record.”
