Nearly two decades into her career, nine-time Grammy-winning singer, songwriter and pianist Norah Jones will release her first full live album, ’Til We Meet Again, on April 16. The 14-track collection presents performances in the U.S., France, Italy, Brazil and Argentina that were recorded between 2017 and 2019. The first single, “It Was You,” which is already available to stream or download, was recorded at the 2018 Ohana Festival in Dana Point, California, with Pete Remm on organ, Christopher Thomas on bass and Brian Blade on drums. 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.

“Whether we’re musicians or fans, we all miss sharing the experience of live music,” Jones said in a press release. “I’ll be highlighting a different charity every week on my Facebook page to send some love to the folks who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes in the live music industry and have had their jobs put on hold. I can’t wait to all be together again.”

The songs featured on ’Til We Meet Again span Jones’ entire career, from her 2002 debut 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 the Grammy-nominated “I’ll Be Gone”). The album closes with Jones’ stunning solo piano performance of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun,” a tribute to Chris Cornell recorded at the Fox Theatre in Detroit just days after Cornell’s death by suicide following a performance at the same venue.

The album was produced by Jones and Jamie Landry, who has worked as her front-of-house engineer on tour.
