Norah Jones The Fall and a Mahal

Jazzy, bluesy singer Norah Jones recently released her fourth album "The Fall", setting the forefront of her innovative new musical direction with a sophisticated yet whimsical album cover.  Just like the elusive Norah presents herself to the public, the cover's photograph features a world of contrast and curiosity.  Seemingly contradictory elements fill the square image, however, altogether they mesh to create a sense of colorful harmony.
"And I love the cover. Is there a story behind it? It looks like something you’d see in Vogue.
That’s funny. [Laughs] It was the photographer’s idea. She wanted to use a bunch of dogs because she likes working with animals. I thought it sounded fun. We ended up just loving the Saint Bernard so much that we got some shots with just him. He was so beautiful. So yeah, it’s meant to be kind of playful and theatrical." - Interview by Rebecca Harper of Hulu, November 18th 2009

Norah has taken a new direction on the 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 among others. Jones enlisted several songwriting collaborators, including Ryan Adams and Okkervil River’s Will Sheff, as well as her frequent partner Jesse Harris. Jones also put together a new group of musicians to perform on the album, including 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).
