Norah Jones To Release Collaborations Albums
Norah Jones will release "…Featuring," an album featuring her musical collaborations of the past decade. The 18-songs set will be released on Nov. 2 on EMI's Blue Note Records.
Ray Charles, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Outkast and Foo Fighters are among those appearing on the album, and tracks included will span back to Jones' earliest recordings (a version of Roxy Music's "More Than This" with guitarist Charlie Hunter in 2001) to her most recent performances, like a song called "Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John" that she cut with Belle and Sebastian. The latter track will also appear on her upcoming album.
The album also includes recordings by some of Jones' own bands and side projects like The Little Willies and El Madmo, as well as performances with artists that she's toured with including M. Ward, Sasha Dobson and Gillian Welch and David Rawlings.
"It's so exciting and flattering and fun when I get asked to sing with somebody that I admire," Jones said via a statement. "It takes you a little bit out of your comfort zone when you're doing something with another artist. You don't know what to expect-it's kind of like being a little kid and having a playdate."
