Jones' most recent album, Little Broken Hearts, has 12 songs spread across two records. The original LPs were pressed on white vinyl, but no such gimmicks this time around. ...
Our favorite Norah Jones album sounds better than ever in this form."
Norah Jones’ Little Broken Hearts was created in collaboration with producer Brian "Danger Mouse" Burton, best known as the producing ace for Gnarls Barkley with singer Cee Lo Green. Jones and Danger Mouse wrote all of the material for the album together at the producer’s studio in Los Angeles, and the duo performed all of the instruments themselves. This is their second time working together — Jones previously appeared as a vocalist on Rome, Danger Mouse’s collaboration with Italian composer Daniele Luppi. Though Little Broken Hearts is the result of a partnership between Jones and Danger Mouse, the record will be credited only to her.
The album’s sound ranges from experimental chamber serenades to stark, electronic-embellished confessions. "It’s obviously very different than anything Norah’s ever done," Burton says. "I don’t know what people will think - I hope they like it, and she doesn’t lose a bunch of fans."
"I’d never gone in with nothing and wrote songs from scratch, and I’d never played bass before on a record," Jones told Rolling Stone. "I was out of my comfort zone - but I was comfortable because we’re friends."

"Jones sings of heartbreak throughout with more contempt than we've ever heard from her before. ... It might be dark, but this stunning collection of anguish is the brightest she's shined in a long time." — Digital Spy, April 2012

Little Broken Hearts is the stunning and musically diverse new break-up album from Norah Jones and fifth full-length of her storied career. The 12-song set was produced by Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton) and features original tracks co-written by Jones and Burton. This is their second time working together, Jones previously appeared as a vocalist on Rome, Danger Mouse’s collaboration with Italian composer Daniele Luppi. Though Little Broken Hearts is the result of a partnership between Jones and Danger Mouse, the record will be credited only to her.
The album’s sound ranges from experimental chamber serenades to stark, electronic-embellished confessions and is preceded by the lead single "Happy Pills" which ushers in a parade of sunshiny hooks and surprised both Jones and Burton from the moment they wrote it: “We didn’t know if it fit on the record. But I couldn’t stop singing it, and neither could Brian." explains Jones. "Eventually we decided it was too much fun, it had to be there.”
In addition to Jones and Burton, the album includes contributions from Blake Mills, Gus Seyffert, Joey Waronker, Heather McIntosh, the Sonus Quartet, Dan Elkin, Jonathan Hischke, Todd Monfalcone and Kennie Takahashi. Little Broken Hearts' artwork draws inspiration from the vintage movie posters that adorn Burton’s Los Angeles studio and is loosely based on the poster for the 1965 Russ Meyer film Mudhoney.
Little Broken Hearts’ is the fascinating next step in the artistic evolution of one of the music world’s most consistently intriguing singer/songwriters. Jones first emerged on the world stage 10 years ago with the 2002 release of Come Away With Me, her self-described “moody little record” that introduced a singular new voice and grew into a global phenomenon, sweeping the 2003 Grammy Awards and signaling a paradigm shift away from the prevailing synthetic pop music of the time. Come Away With Me has just become the 10th best-selling album of the Soundscan era and has sold 25 million copies worldwide.
