is back in action! The singer/songwriter has announced the release of her fifth album Little Broken Hearts
, which will be out on 5/1 via Blue Note
, and early last month she released the first single from the record, "Happy Pills." The Danger Mouse-produced track is an upbeat headbopper that sounds like a carefree love song, until you hear under the surface Jones singing about a destroyed relationship. She croons, "Would you please just let me go now?"
Today, Norah Jones premiered a video to go along with "Happy Pills." It pairs well with the contradicting song: the hazy video is tinted with a vintage feel, and all the clothes and furniture looks fresh out of the era that this song takes from. It's kind of like the "We Found Love" music video if it was played by the passive agressive characters in Mad Men
