Is Norah Jones cool? I honestly have no idea. But, I remember her last album featured songwriting from both Will Sheff and Ryan Adams, yet I still couldn’t be bothered to check it out. Then, the singer played a prominent role in the Danger Mouse/Jack White Rome album. Now, Jones has enlisted Danger Mouse to produce the entirety of Little Broken Hearts, her May 1st album that will be released on Blue Note. And, first sampling “Happy Pills” is pretty solid. So, when I ask if Norah Jones is cool, I guess the most appropriate response is who cares? If the rest of her album sounds like this track, being cool couldn’t be less relevant.
