Norah Jones will release her new Danger Mouse produced album, Little Broken Hearts, on May 1st.
Jones has also revealed the album cover and track listing of the 12-song set, which features original songs co-written by Jones and Burton. 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 made the record. It's a great visual."
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.
Jones will tour extensively in 2012, performing at a mixture of festivals, amphitheatres and theatres in the US and abroad. Select summer European dates, including a pair of sold out London shows at the Royal Festival Hall, are already posted at www.norahjones.com, with more to be announced in the coming weeks. US tour dates will be revealed shortly, but in the immediate future Jones will be performing at SXSW in Austin, Texas.
She will debut songs from Little Broken Hearts with her new band at La Zona Rosa (March 17 at 7:45pm), and will also be performing with The Little Willies at Waterloo Records (March 15 at 1:00pm) and Antone's (March 15 at 10:00pm).
