02 APRIL 2021 (TORONTO, ON) - Norah Jones has released a new live version of “Don’t Know Why,” the second single from the singer, songwriter, and pianist’s first-ever live album ‘Til We Meet Again, which comes out April 16 on Blue Note Records. Written by Jesse Harris, “Don’t Know Why” was the hit song of Jones’ phenomenal 2002 debut Come Away With Me, which swept the 2003 GRAMMY Awards winning eight awards including all four top categories. The new live version of “Don’t Know Why” was recorded in 2018 at Live au Campo in Perpignan, France with Pete Remm on organ, Christopher Thomas on bass, and Brian Blade on drums.

 

Recorded between 2017-2019 in the U.S., France, Italy, Brazil, and Argentina, the 14 songs featured on ‘Til We Meet Again span Jones’ entire career from Come Away With Me (“Don’t Know Why,” “I’ve Got To See You Again,” “Cold, Cold Heart”), 2004’s Feels Like Home (“Sunrise,” “Those Sweet Words”), 2012’s Little Broken Hearts (“After The Fall”), 2016’s Day Breaks (“Flipside,” “Tragedy”), as well as her more recent singles series (“It Was You,” “Begin Again,” “Just A Little Bit,” “Falling,” and “I’ll Be Gone”). The album closes with Jones’ stunning solo piano performance of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun.” Additional musicians featured on the album include bassist Jesse Murphy, guitarist Jesse Harris, flutist Jorge Continentino, and percussionist Marcelo Costa. ‘Til We Meet Again can be pre-ordered now on vinyl, CD, or digital download.
