Norah Jones CD Not Too Late Available Jan. 30

The singer and songwriter will offer all-new original songs on Not Too Late.

NorahJones.jpgEight-time Grammy winner Norah Jones’ new album, Not Too Late, will be her first to include all original songs. It will be released on Jan. 30.

In addition, for the first time ever, all of the songs are either written or co-written by Norah, who sings and plays piano and guitar. The CD, Norah’s third solo effort for Blue Note, follows her 2002 debut Come Away With Me and 2004’s Feels Like Home. Jones says that Not Too Late, produced by her boyfriend and bandmember/bassist Lee Alexander in his home studio in New York, is more personal than her previous efforts since she had a hand in composing all of the CD’s songs.

The CD features guitarists Adam Levy and Jesse Harris, keyboardist Larry Goldings, drummer Andy Borger, saxophonist Bill McHenry, vocalist and flutist Daru Oda, cellist Julia Kent and cellist Jeff Zeigler of the classical-jazz group Kronos Quartet. Song titles are the title track, “Until the End,” “Rosie’s Lullaby,” "Be My Somebody," "Sinkin' Soon," “Thinking About You,” “Little Room,” “The Broken,” “Wake Up,” “Wish I Could,” "My Dear Country" and "The Sun Doesn't Like You."
