Share This:

Norah Jones 2016 via Blue NoteNorah Jones will release a new album, Day Breaks, on Blue Note Records October 7. Jones’ sixth solo album is being described in a label press release as a return to the jazz-influenced approach of her multi-platinum debut Come Away With Me, which netted Jones eight Grammys, including Album of the Year. The album features Jones on piano and vocals accompanied by jazz luminaries Wayne Shorter (saxophone), Dr. Lonnie Smith (organ), and Brian Blade (drums). The 12-song set includes nine new originals alongside covers of songs by Horace Silver, Duke Ellington and Neil Young.

“This new album feels full circle because I’m going back to my early influences,” said Norah in the announcement. “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.”

Watch the video for “Carry On,” the album’s terrific first single…

Fans who pre-order the download of Day Breaks on the Norah Jones Store, iTunes or Amazon will receive “Carry On” instantly, and the single is also on all streaming services including Apple Music and Spotify.

Come Away With Me has sold an astonishing 26 million copies since its 2002 release. It’s single, “Don’t Know Why,” peaked at only #30 on the pop singles chart yet won Grammys for Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
