Less than a year after releasing her fourth studio album, the underrated “The Fall,” Norah Jones will put out “….Featuring,” a collection of her collaborations with other artists.
The set, out Nov. 2, includes “Virginia Moon,” her track with the Foo Fighters and “Dear John” with Ryan Adams. The album also includes her work on three Grammy-winning albums of the years, Ray Charles’ “Genius Loves Company,” Herbie Hancock’s “River: The Joni Letters,” and OutKast’s “Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.”
Spanning the breadth of her career, among “Featuring’s” tracks are a cover of Roxy Music’s “More than This,” recorded with Charlie Hunter in 2001, and, most recently, “Little Lou, Prophet Jack, Ugly John” with Belle & Sebastian. The track will also appear on B&S’s new album.
All of the tracks, other than “Little Lou” have been previously released.
Often, these kinds of sets signal the end of an artist’s contract with a label and they’re just fulfilling their obligation but a label source assures that this is not the last album on her contract. So why is she releasing this now? Sounds like it's a good way to appeal to her fans during the holiday buying season.
