Roughly one year after [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Norah Jones[/lastfm] contributed vocals at the request of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Danger Mouse[/lastfm] for his 2011 effort, ROME, the two are collaborating once again; but this time around, the collaboration is for Little Broken Hearts, Jones new record slated for a spring release that will feature the incomparable [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Danger Mouse[/lastfm] handling production duties.
The duo first linked up when [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Danger Mouse[/lastfm] and his production team were seeking the perfect fit that would give his album ROME the balance it needed, and Norah was just that. After contributing three songs to the album, the two knew they had something special and immidiatly started work on Jones new album.
Jones first release since 2009′s The Fall will be comprised of all new original songs written entirely by Jones and Mouse. Little Broken Hearts is shaping up to be a very fascinating look at how Norah will attempt to reinvent herself in an effort to stay relevant in an industry that changes drastically as each day passes.
The record will also create a whole new way in which fans perceive both of them, which makes it is as equally risky as ambitious for both artists as they are writing all the songs by themselves and then recording all instruments themselves as well with Jones on piano, keyboards, bass, and guitar, and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Danger Mouse[/lastfm] contributing drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, and string arrangements.
