New album by Norah Jones, The Fall.

Coming Tuesday, Norah Jones will release her fourth studio album, The Fall. I got to hear a couple of songs from the NPR radio.
The songs are slightly different from what Norah Jones has offered so far. This change in direction might have been deliberate as she has collaborated with Jaquire King, the producer/engineer who has Kings of Leon and Modest Mouse among his clients. KingĀ  has also roped in Joey Waronker REM’s drummer and guitarists like Marc Ribot (Tom Waits and Elvis Costello) to name few session musicians. The net result is a very indie sounding album, but still like her older works Jones’ voice remain the most prominent sound you can hear. This is a carefully done set of songs, not departing far from her roots as a jazz singer and yet charting a new course in musical style.
A single from this album was released last month , “Chasing Pirates” and it has video too. It shows a cute Jones commandeering a building with sails and a Jolly Roger atop, through the Manhattan streets. Watch Norah performing the number at the Late Show with David Letterman.
