Begin Again (CD)
Nine-time Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Norah Jones release Begin Again, is a collection of singles that gathers seven eclectic songs that Jones has recorded over the past year with collaborators including Jeff Tweedy and Thomas Bartlett.
Reveling in the joy and spontaneity of music-making with a true spirit of openness, Jones got together with various friends for brief, largely-improvised sessions to collaborate and experiment.
"I felt inspired to record and try different things," Jones says, adding that the idea was to make it "quick and fun and easy and low-pressure. It's a great way to collaborate with other people. Just a day or 3 in the studio and that's it."
The singles ran the gamut from riveting electronic experiments to starkly acoustic folk ballads to organ-and-horn drenched soul songs. With the addition of three more previously unreleased songs, Begin Again presents seven snapshots of creativity from one of the music world's most versatile and consistently intriguing artists.
1. My Heart Is Full
2. Begin Again
3. It Was You
4. A Song With No Name
5. Uh Oh
7. Just A Little Bit
