"Always more versatile than most people think," says NPR, "Jones fits all of this smart material to perfection, marking her second decade as a star while making her sound cooler and more unflappably sophisticated than ever."
In addition to appearances on CBS Late Show With David Letterman (May 2), ABC Good Morning America (May 3), ABC The View (May 7), and The Rachael Ray Show (May 9), Jones will also be taping an episode of VH1 Storytellers that will air on June 8.

This limited edition release will be sold on the Record Store Day website on Saturday, April 21, with proceeds benefitting ART from the ashes (AFTA) in their efforts to aid the recovery and restoration process in Bastrop County, Texas, which was devastated by wildfires in September 2011.
