Norah Jones Charts More North American Tour Dates
A second leg has been added by Norah Jones to her current trek of North America. The added dates will set the tour running through June, as Jones continues backing “Not Too Late,” her latest album.
The Grammy award winning songwriter and singer along with The Handsome Band, her backing band, will be kicking off the headlining outing in Wallingford, CT on April 13. The first recently announced date is for Morrison CO on June 1.
“Not Too Late,” marks the third studio album from Jones following her debut in 2002 with “Come Away With Me.”
All 13 tracks from “Not Too Late” were written or co-written by Jones with Lee Alexander, her longtime bassist and songwriting partner. Alexander also produced the album. Other longtime collaborators returning for the new set include singer Daru Oda, drummer Andy Borger and guitarists Robbie McIntosh, Kevin Breit, Jesse Harris and Adam Levy. Guest appearances on the album include cellist Jeff Ziegler from Kronos Quarter, organist Larry Goldings and the singer M. Ward.
The new album follows “Feels Like Home,” Jones’ third album from 2004. That album was certified as quadruple platinum after shipping over four million US copies. The album also earned Jones a Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. It was the eighth Grammy Jones has received in her career.
According to Jones’ publicist, she is the 21st century’s best selling woman artist. Over the decade she has sold over 15 million copies, and worldwide 30 million.
