Norah Jones and Dolly Parton talk musical collaboration
Dolly Parton and Norah Jones have sung together before, most famously at the CMA Awards. With the arrival of Norah Jones' latest effort, ...Featuring -- a CD full of star-studded duets -- Jones sought out the singing legend and we’ve got an exclusive clip of Jones and Parton talking about the result.
Norah Jones' latest CD lands in stores November 16 and besides Parton, her all-star duet partners include legends such as Ray Charles and Willie Nelson, but also modern legends-in-the-making such as members of OutKast and the Foo Fighters.
The 18-track CD allowed Norah Jones to be a little selfish in her musical efforts by enlisting people she has revered for decades. "A lot of the people on this record are people I've worshiped since I was a kid, and some of them are younger and more my contemporaries," said Jones. "Even though the musicians are so varied, the vibe of the songs makes sense when we put them all together."
Jones has always been known as a musician that was difficult to classify. She effortlessly moves between pop, soul and the classic singer-songwriter vein. Showcasing that passion for all things musically, regardless of their genre, Jones has compiled a song list and singers that run the musical gamut.
The latest tracks from Jones include classics by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Joni Mitchell and new gems from songwriters such as Ryan Adams. Check out Norah's new CD!
