Norah Jones Returns With Danger Mouse-Produced ‘Happy Pills’

No one would have blamed Norah Jones for retiring at 23 after taking over the world with 2002’s Come Away With Me. Hell, no one would’ve blamed her for remaining a dependable jazz-pop singer for the rest of her career, content to play auditoriums and lounges for a steadily aging audience. Her first single from her next album, Little Broken Hearts, isn’t the most adventurous thing in the world, but it’s definitely forward-thinking. Produced by Danger Mouse, "Happy Pills" has Jones decrying some bogus ex of hers over a sanguine rhythm, her voice as smoky and confident as ever.

Little Broken Hearts is out on May 1, but Jones will premiere a slew of songs at SXSW in March. Wonderful!
