Singer Norah Jones and producer Danger Mouse: United by some broken hearts
It was just a decade ago when the gently scratched voice of Norah Jones, the twentysomething lover of adult ballads, jazz and the classics such as Billie Holiday and Etta James, became with a solo album the breakthrough artist of the international scene and the big winner of the 45th edition of the Grammy Awards.
The Singer of Come away with me how his songs fantasy more blockbuster films (Turn me on sneaks on the soundtrack of Love Actually) and sales of his work grew proportionally to the number of fans.
Norah Jones and Danger Mouse had already collaborated on the project ‘Rome’ there was not all: in the last decades Jones has formed duets with artists such as Ray Charles and Dolly Parton, as well as bands such as Belle & Sebastian and Foo Fighters. It also debuted as an actress with a starring role. He succeeded in the film My Blueberry Nights, where she kissed and gained the fiction of Jude Law bar cakes.
Now has teamed up with an old friend, Producer Danger Mouse, to launch next spring a new album titled Little broken Hearts (small broken hearts). It is not the first time that Jones is working with Danger Mouse: the second recruited singer for the curious album Rome, the album released in 2011 in which the producer pays tribute to Italian cinema soundtracks. There Norah contributed three songs, one of them Black.
While his label still has developed any of the songs comprising Little broken hearts, critics looked forward to the combination of the two musical visions of artists. Both Jones and Danger Mouse share all the credits of compositions. The first is responsible for the piano, keyboards, bass and guitar; Danger Mouse contributes drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and string arrangements.
Jones will spend the greater part of 2012 tour by United States and abroad, although there is still no dates closed to Spain.
Then listen to the item Black, one of the old collaborations between Jones and Danger Mouse.
