Norah Jones didn't really know how to handle the incredible success she experienced early in her career, and for a while, she seemed to back away from it. These days, it doesn't seem to bother her (it shouldn't), and she seems to be working a bit more than she has in the past to get her music heard. The first single from her upcoming album, The Fall, due out November 17, is "Chasing Pirates." The video is above, and premiered exclusively on You can get the single when you pre-order the album at iTunes, and the deluxe iTunes version features covers of a few songs, including Johnny Cash's "Cry, Cry, Cry" and Wilco's "Jesus, Inc." And, according to a Entertainment Weekly online exclusive, she having remixes of her songs done by The Beastie Boys, Beck and Santigold.

Meanwhile, the other video above is Norah with Q-Tip, "Life Is Better." It is from Tip's 2009 overlooked classic, The Renaissance. In a way, it promotes Norah as much as it does Tip. Anyway, I'm a big fan of Norah's, and I'm excited to hear the new album.
