Not Too Late

Jones is back! That’s Norah Jones with her third album Not Too Late. It’s coming out on Blue Note on 29th January 2007 and I’ve been lucky enough to hear a few snippets… it’s sounding good. By this time the deal is simple with Norah Jones and you surely either like her or you don’t, pretty clear cut I’d say. I happen to like her very much, and tracks such as; Don’t Know Why, Come Away With Me, Turn Me On, and Sunrise, will stay with me forever – so some more of the same in the form of a third album sounds good to me! Check out this track from the new album…

Norah Jones – Thinking About You
>> download track
>> pre-order album @ Amazon US / Amazon UK
This download link will expire on 4th January.

Make sure you get your pre-orders in at the above links, cos I think this one is gonna fly off the shelves. I’ll bring you more details of this 13-track badboy as and when I get them. For now you can listen to a stream of clips from the new album here (asx), here (mov), and here (ram).

    It is not only a question of like her or don’t. It is a question of material. Her second album, relying more on self-penned work and collaborations with her boyfriend (now producer) and bass player, was less solid. With this third album, she is again keeping it in the family, whereas in my opinion she’d have more artistic success covering jazz tunes like the Ellington number she did the last time out or her brilliant Hank Williams cover on the debut CD. I simply do not believe that, as songwriters, Jones and Hamilton will have the prolific output and quality of, say, and Andy Partridge in his day.

    I have the deluxe edition of Feels Like Home, and standout tracks on that album include her Graham Parsons cover on the DVD, along with the Ellington cover I just mentioned. (This album is a bargain at 7.99 “club price” or from private sellers on amazon.)

    I just don’t want to see her give up on interpreting great songs from other artists on her records. Sunrise is sweet and all that, but it doesn’t have the “gravitas” of Cold, Cold Heart or The Nearness of You.

    I also prefer her first album, but my comment was really with regards to the style of song she creates, although I’m well aware that things are never totally black and white – you are either into bluesy singer-songwriter stuff, or you’re not. I mean there are always gonna be good and bad tracks in any genre, but I feel that you know roughly what you are gonna get with Norah Jones – I wasn’t expecting some house or hip-hop… and strangely enough… I didn’t get any from her.

    Sorry about that, I should put a note up somewhere to explain. Basically the FileLodge links are direct links to the mp3 files, so you need to right hand click the link and select SAVE TARGET AS or SAVE LINK AS, depending on your browser.

    Merry Christmas to you too. :-)
