NEW ALBUM: NORAH JONES | COME AWAY WITH ME (SUPER DELUXE EDITION)
Norah Jones has released "Come Away With Me: 20th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition" via Blue Note/UMe. The 44-track collection captures the emergence of one of the most popular and successful new artists of the 21st century and reveals, for the first time, the whole story behind the making of her classic debut. The Super Deluxe Edition features the remastered version of the original album, produced by Arif Mardin, and no fewer than 22 previously unreleased tracks. These include the original demos that Jones submitted to Blue Note and the complete First Session demos she made after being signed by the famed label. Alongside these is the first version of the album made by the artist at Allaire Studios with producer Craig Street. Most of these sessions have never been heard before, and they offer a fascinating insight into what "Come Away With Me" might have been. The "20th Anniversary Super Deluxe Edition" was produced by Eli Wolf and will be available digitally and in 4-LP vinyl and 3-CD sets. Both come in premium packaging with an extensive booklet containing new liner notes by Jones and rare session photos. Standalone 1-LP and 1-CD versions of the remastered original album will also be released. On her 21st birthday, Jones was heard at a jazz brunch by EMI Publishing employee Shell White, leading to a meeting with Blue Note President Bruce Lundvall. A month later, she was in Lundvall’s office playing him her three-song demo CD, including confident versions of “Walkin’ My Baby Back Home” and “Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most,” and a more singer-songwriter styled original, written by Harris.
