Part of Analogue Productions reissue of the Norah Jones solo catalog, featuring the individual albums Come Away With Me, Feels Like Home, Not Too Late, The Fall and ...Little Broken Hearts. Each album will also be featured in an exclusive LP box set and an exclusive SACD box set that will include Norahs Covers album!
Norah has taken a new direction on The Fall, experimenting with different sounds and a new set of collaborators, including Jacquire King, a noted producer and engineer who has worked with Kings of Leon, Tom Waits and Modest Mouse. Richly detailed and vocally lush on SACD from Analogue Productions, The Fall, Jones fourth album, may surprise some of Jones die-hard fans, Billboard magazine notes. During the 13-song set, Jones ditches the gentle piano playing of her previous work and tears into fresh, beat-savvy arrangements, playing plenty of electric guitar and exploring the piercing quality of Wurlitzer electric piano. Jones smoky voice and soulful veneer highlight the opening track and first single, "Chasing Pirates."
Jones displays a slinky kind of ambience on "Light As a Feather (co-written with Ryan Adams). The social commentary "Its Gonna Be" offers a garage-rock attitude, and "Youve Ruined Me" has a rich Americana flavor. But Jones is still a little bit country ("Tell Yer Mama") and a little bit rocknroll ("Stuck"). Overall, writes reviewer Gary Graff, Jones straddles those lines in an entirely different manner than she ever has before.
For The Fall, Jones enlisted several songwriting collaborators, including Ryan Adams and Okkervil Rivers Will Sheff, as well as her frequent partners Jesse Harris and Richard Julian. Musicians include drummers Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M.) and James Gadson (Bill Withers), keyboardist James Poyser (Erykah Badu, Al Green) and guitarists Marc Ribot (Tom Waits, Elvis Costello) and Smokey Hormel (Johnny Cash, Joe Strummer).
