20 years ago, on February 26, 2002, a hard-to-categorize album by an unknown 22-year-old singer, songwriter, and pianist was released with modest expectations. Released by the legendary jazz label Blue Note Records, it wasn’t a jazz album, nor did it resemble anything else on the pop landscape of 2002. But Come Away With Me, the debut album by Norah Jones, would go on to charm the world and introduce one of the greatest voices of our time. The album steadily grew into a global phenomenon, reaching #1 in 20 countries, selling nearly 30 million copies, and sweeping the 2003 GRAMMY Awards with eight wins including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist. On April 29, Blue Note/UMe will release Come Away With Me: 20th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition, a remarkable 44-track collection including 22 previously unreleased tracks that captures the emergence of a singular talent and reveals for the first time the full story of the making of this now-classic album.

 

Today, April 28 at 1:00pm ET, Norah will livestream a performance of the full original album, as well as several songs from the expanded Super Deluxe Edition, from Allaire Studios in upstate New York where she recorded the first version of Come Away With Me two decades ago. The band also features musicians who appeared on the original album including drummer Brian Blade, guitarist Bill Frisell, bassist Tony Scherr, and a special guest appearance from guitarist Jesse Harris. On May 4, Norah will also be performing “Don’t Know Why” on NBC’s The Tonight Show where she made her TV debut in 2002 when Come Away With Me was first released.

 

In addition to a remaster of the original album, which was produced by Arif Mardin, the 20th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition also includes the original demos that Norah submitted to Blue Note, the complete First Session demos she made for the label, and the first version of the album that Norah made at Allaire Studios with producer Craig Street, most of which has never been heard before and offers a fascinating look at the album that might have been. The Super Deluxe Edition was produced by Eli Wolf and will be released digitally and physically as a 3-CD set and a 4-LP vinyl set (out May 20), both of which come in premium packaging with an extensive booklet featuring new liner notes by Norah and rare session photos. Standalone 1-LP and 1-CD versions of the remastered original album will also be released. The original album was remastered directly from the ½” vinyl master reels by Ted Jensen, with vinyl cut all-analog by Joe Nino-Hernes. All other material was mastered from the highest resolution digital source available by Ted Jensen and Greg Calbi, with vinyl cut by Joe Nino-Hernes.
