Norah Jones Returns To Piano Roots on ‘Day Breaks’ Due 10/7 – Fall Tour Announced

Norah Jones has announced the October 7 global release of Day Breaks (Blue Note Records), her sixth solo album which is a kindred spirit to the singer’s breakout debut Come Away With Me and finds the 9-time GRAMMY-winner returning to the piano and her roots. The album features jazz luminaries including her Blue Note label mates saxophonist Wayne Shorter, organist Dr. Lonnie Smith, and drummer Brian Bladeon a 12-song set that presents 9 new originals alongside covers of songs by Horace SilverDuke Ellington and Neil Young.

“This new album feels full circle because I’m going back to my early influences,” says Norah. “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 first single which features Norah’s signature piano sound below..

 

Norah has also announced Fall tour dates in North America and Europe including concerts in Los Angeles (Greek Theatre, October 25) and New York City (Beacon Theatre, November 29).
