Norah Jones takes the stage with her new band at Tarrytown Music Hall, celebrating her new album 'Little Broken Hearts'. And, FUV's Rita Houston talked with Norah backstage about the new songs, and her main collaborator on the project: Danger Mouse. [recorded 04/11/12]
Norah Jones released her new album, Little Broken Hearts, earlier this week, but a lucky audience at Tarrytown Music Hall got a live preview of the songs a few weeks early. And, FUV got to hit record!
We probably don’t need to convince you about the invaluable role public radio plays in supporting music, but you can’t take some things for granted. So WFUV is proud to partner with NPR and other stations across the country as we declare April to be Public Radio Music Month.
“My name is Norah, and this is my band. We’re going to play songs from my new album.” With those few words Norah Jones kicked off a rehearsal last night before an audience jammed into The Living Room. (Some were folks who’d come for my monthly On Your Radar showcase of emerging artists and stumbled onto this little surprise.) Why there? Probably because The Living Room (albeit the original location around the corner) was where she got her start. Why now? She’s headed to Austin for a SXSW showcase this weekend.
New Music Monday is a collection of the best new releases in music each week. We share them with you every Monday on WFUV.
'The Little Willlies: For The Good Times' The Little Willies (Lee Alexander, Jim Campilongo, Norah Jones, Richard Julian and Dan Rieser) have returned with 'For The Good Times' -- the rousing follow-up to their eponymous 2006 debut. Ahead of its 2012 release, the band previewed songs from the new album at a few select shows last fall, including a performance at The Bell House in Brooklyn.
Norah Jones is back in Studio A for the release of her fourth studio album 'The Fall,' which features contributions from Ryan Adams, Okkervil River's Will Sheff, and guitarist Marc Ribot. Norah and her full band joined Rita Houston to play an extended set of songs off her new album. (11/19/09)
