NORAH JONES ANNOUNCES 2010 U.S. TOUR DATES IN SUPPORT OF HER ACCLAIMED NEW ALBUM THE FALL JONES TO PREMIERE REMIXES ON RCRD LBL, STEREOGUM & ARTIST DIRECT

Multiple Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Norah Jones has announced U.S. tour dates in support of her critically-acclaimed new album The Fall, which was released by EMI’s Blue Note Records on November 17. The 36-city tour will kick off March 5, 2010. Please find all tour dates listed below. A select number of shows will go on sale beginning December 4, 2009. Full venue and ticketing information is available at http://www.norahjones.com/tour/.


Jones will also be premiering several remixes from The Fall this week. The three tracks will be featured on three different websites throughout the week. On December 1, RCRD LBL will present “That’s What I Said (The NYC Remix by Adrock and Mike D).” On December 2, Stereogum will present “Chasing Pirates (Santigold and Snotty Remix).” On December 3, Artist Direct will present “Chasing Pirates (Droogs Remix),” which was created by a remix collective that included Beck. The remixes will be released digitally and on vinyl on January 12, 2010.

“We decided to have people I admire do some remixes,” Jones recently told Entertainment Weekly. “[Adrock and Mike D of] Beasties Boys did one, and Beck, and Santigold.” Jones first collaborated with Beastie Boys during the 2008 presidential election when they recruited her for their Get Out The Vote concerts, which also included Santigold. Jones also appeared in the season finale of 30 Rock this past May along with Mike D and Adrock. Jones and Beck first met when they performed together on KCRW’s holiday concert in 2002.

The Fall finds Jones experimenting with a new set of collaborators, including Jacquire King, a noted producer and engineer who has worked with Kings of Leon, Tom Waits, and Modest Mouse among others. Jones enlisted several songwriting collaborators, including Ryan Adams and Okkervil River’s Will Sheff, as well as her frequent partner Jesse Harris. King also helped Jones put together a new group of musicians to perform on the album, including drummers Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M.) and James Gadson (Bill Withers), keyboardist James Poyser (Erykah Badu, Al Green), and guitarists Marc Ribot (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello) and Smokey Hormel (Johnny Cash, Joe Strummer).



CHECK OUT WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE FALL:

“Jones is standing tall on The Fall … A terrific batch of songs that smartly address her recent romantic travails.”

—USA Today

“Jones sounds more confident and stretches her songwriting muscle…Her continued growth as a writer, not just as singer, brings another exciting dimension to The Fall.”

—Associated Press

“Some of her most unguarded songs…Ms. Jones is making a new start.”

—NY Times

“The Fall has been billed as Norah Jones’ rock album. In fact, it’s something even more surprising: a hot-blooded soul record.”

—SPIN

“…avant-roots music that rocks.”

—Rolling Stone

“A voice made to jump genres: Supple, mellifluous, effortlessly sexy.”

—Entertainment Weekly

“Her voice, always sultry, finds new layers of sexiness.”

—People Magazine

“Norah Jones has moved on. Her imagination’s flying, whether it’s through those instinctive fingers… or the silken sensuality of her voice…”

—MOJO

“Out goes ‘Snorah’, in comes gothic blueswoman…The last vestiges of smoky jazz have been blown away. Instead, King has conjured a deliciously gothic blues…The Fall contains more than a few copper-bottomed classics: “Chasing Pirates,” a near-perfect two-and-half minute study of racing thoughts that get in the way of sleep, quivering with soft-rock sensuality.”

—Q

“The Fall… represents an evolution toward a new sound altogether… Jones maintains her jazzy, sultry sound while pushing into more contemporary pop territory… A warm, organic-sounding record, The Fall showcases Jones’ musical depth in exciting and unexpected ways, suitable for old fans and newcomers alike.”

—NPR Music

“Norah Jones could have kept recording iterations of Come Away With Me for decades. Clearly that’s not what she’s doing. The gradual shifts away from that oversize debut have worked so far, and The Fall is an even bigger step away, and a step up in what is still the beginning of a big career… what Jones has done with the new record is indeed another departure. Only this time she’s heading down a louder, dusted-up rock path.”

—Newsweek
