Little Broken Hearts is a collaboration with producer and musician Danger Mouse. The two artists first worked together when Danger Mouse called upon Norah Jones to contribute vocals to his acclaimed 2011 album Rome, and their connection proved deep enough that they decided to collaborate on Norah Jones’ fifth studio album. Little Broken Hearts, which features original songs co-written by Norah Jones and Danger Mouse, is the fascinating next step in the artistic evolution of one of the most intriguing singers to have emerged in the past decade. Together they have married their highly personal styles to create an entirely new sound.
It was that singular voice that caught the attention of Danger Mouse as he began to conceptualize Rome, his homage to classic Italian film score music. He already had Jack White in mind for the male role, and he and his collaborator Daniele Luppi realized that Norah Jones’ voice would give the project the perfect balance it needed. Norah Jones contributed three standout songs to Rome, and around the same time she and Danger Mouse began working on some of the material that would eventually become Little Broken Hearts.
The duo reconvened in Danger Mouse’s Los Angeles studio for a few months to finish what they had begun. The songs were all built from the ground up in the studio, with Norah Jones and Danger Mouse sharing all the songwriting credits and performing the majority of the instrumental parts; Norah Jones on piano, keyboards, bass, and guitar, and Danger Mouse contributing drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, and string arrangements.
Norah Jones will tour extensively in 2012, performing at a mixture of festivals, amphitheatres and theatres throughout Europe and the US.
