Norah Jones tags Ryan Adams for new CD
Collaborates with Okkervil River frontman and Tom Waits 'Mule Varations' producer
Norah Jones has decided to shake it up a little on her fourth album: she plays guitar more than piano, she's switched up her band and she's got a new producer.
Plus, she's co-writing with the likes of Ryan Adams, Okkervil River's Will Sheff and longtime collaborator Jesse Harris.
"I knew I wanted to try some different things on this album," Jones says, in a statement.. "I'd been playing with the same musicians for a long time. We're all still friendly and I hope we play together again, but it felt like a good time to work with new people and experiment with different sounds. As far as a producer, I wanted someone who could take me out of my comfort zone and find the right musicians to capture what I wanted to do with this collection of songs. I got in touch with Jacquire initially because he engineered one of my favorite records of all time, Tom Waits' Mule Variations. He was really eager to do it and we got along really well, which was important."
Jones wrote the songs for the project over the past two years. It is her first album since 2007's "Not Too Late." Jones' best-selling album remains her 2002 debut, eight-time Grammy winner "Come Away With Me."
