So it’s been 10 years since Norah Jones sold shit loads of records (20 million to be exact) with her first album making her one of the biggest sellers of the decade. Danger Mouse has taken on the writing & production duties on her new record ‘Little Broken Hearts’. For some this may come as a surprise that Danger Mouse would work with some like Norah Jones, but we remember when she worked with Madlib on Talib Kweli’s track ‘Soon The New Day’ some major cool brownie points and defo showed appetite to step away from the coffee table scene!!
Fast forward to last year working on Danger Mouse’s ‘Rome’ project they must have hit it off; Well the fruits of the relationship have produced a dame good album with a lot of dark content and richly produced sound, Danger Mouse has really managed to capture her voice superbly with a much richer tone. We think they have really walked the tight rope of making it more musically interesting yet not way out west that it would alienate her old audience.
Over at NPR they are letting you stream the whole album so go check it out.
Danger Mouse (aka Brain Burton) has helped Norah reinvent her self and at the same time put another impressive notch on his belt, he is quickly establishing him self as one of the best producers in the business!
