Norah Jones New Album
Norah Jones is a twenty-four-year old singer. Her first album, "Come Away With Me" was a huge success. It was released two years ago. It has sold more than eight-million copies in the United States and seventeen-million copies around the world. And it won eight Grammy awards last year. Now, Norah Jones has a second album. Phoebe Zimmermann tells us about it.
Norah Jones' new album is called "Feels Like Home." It was released last month and sold almost two million copies within three weeks. The week after it was released, it was the top album in at least sixteen countries. Here is a song from the new album. The song is called "Sunrise."
Norah Jones' beautiful voice makes her new album similar to her first one. However, this album is also different. Jones and the members of her band wrote ten of the thirteen songs on "Feels Like Home." Norah Jones wrote this one, "What Am I to You?"
Most of Norah Jones' music is influenced by jazz. However, there are several songs on "Feels Like Home" that sound like country and bluegrass music. Country singer Dolly Parton joins Norah Jones on this song. We leave you with "Creepin' In."
