Norah Jones is a singer-songwriter who first emerged on the world stage with the February 2002 release of "Come Away with Me," her self-described "moody little record" that introduced a singular new voice and grew into a global phenomenon, sweeping the 2003 Grammy Awards and signaling a paradigm shift away from the prevailing synthetic pop music of the time. "Come Away with Me" has just become the #10 best-selling album of the Soundscan era. The album has sold 25 million copies worldwide.

Jones next released three more critically acclaimed and commercially successful solo albums — "Feels Like Home" (2004), "Not Too Late" (2007), and "The Fall" (2009) — as well as two albums with her country collective The Little Willies. The 2010 compilation "…Featuring Norah Jones" showed her to possess an incredibly versatile voice by collecting her collaborations with artists as diverse as Willie Nelson, Outkast, Herbie Hancock, and Foo Fighters. Jones previously collaborated with Danger Mouse on his acclaimed 2011 album "Rome," a valentine to classic Italian film score music that also featured Jack White.

In 2012, she released "Little Broken Hearts" (Blue Note/EMI), her stunning new album produced by Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton) which features original songs co-written by Jones and Burton. Jones drew the inspiration for the album cover from the vintage movie posters that adorn Burton's Los Angeles studio. "Brian has this great collection of Russ Meyer posters in his studio," explains Jones, "and this particular one, called Mudhoney, was right over the couch where I sat every day. I always was looking at it and thinking 'that's so cool I want to look like her!' I remember staring at the poster the whole time we made the record. It's a great visual."

Jones will tour extensively in 2012, performing at a mixture of festivals, amphitheatres and theaters in the US and abroad. Also in 2012, she can be seen playing herself in a cameo role in Seth MacFarland's movie comedy "Ted," starring Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis.
