Norah Jones returns. Ninth album ‘Visions’ showcases sparkling new sound

"The reason I called the album Visions is because a lot of the ideas came in the middle of the night or in that moment right before sleep"
10 March 2024

Since her 2002 breakout album Come Away With Me, Norah Jones has amassed nine GRAMMYs and sold over 53 million albums worldwide. 

Now, Jones returns with her ninth solo album, Visions, produced by Leon Michels. Contrasting her introspective previous work, Visions boasts a vibrant sound highlighted by the lead single Paradise and its accompanying video by Joelle Grace Taylor. Collaborating with Michels and other talented musicians, including trumpeter Dave Guy, bassist Jesse Murphy, and drummers Brian Blade and Homer Steinweiss, Jones delivers a captivating experience.

Jones reveals: “The reason I called the album Visions is because a lot of the ideas came in the middle of the night or in that moment right before sleep. We did most of the songs in the same way where I was at the piano or on guitar and Leon was playing drums and we were just jamming on stuff. I like the rawness between me and Leon, the way it sounds kind of garage-y but also kind of soulful, because that’s where he’s coming from, but also not overly perfected.”

Blue Note Records President Don Was says: “When I first heard the songs on Norah’s new album, Visions, it was evident that she had weathered the storm and emerged with an enlightened perspective. She’s singing about being awake, wanting to dance, finally feeling free, being on her way to making it right, and acceptance of what life brings. She’s seeing light at the end of a tunnel that had engulfed her four years previously and is offering guidance, comfort, and joy to others who may find themselves standing at similar crossroads.”

Visions is available in various formats, including exclusive vinyl editions and a CD with a bonus track. Jones has already performed the lead single Running on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and will make additional TV appearances. ​ Her ​podcast, Norah Jones Is Playing Along, premiered in 2022, featuring her collaborations with fellow artists.
