NORAH Jones will play a rare London date this summer in support of her new album, Little Broken Hearts.

The singer will play the Royal Festival Hall on Friday, June 1, 2012. Tickets go on sale on Friday, February 17, at 10am.

Little Broken Hearts, her latest album, marks a collaboration with the producer and musician Danger Mouse.

The two first worked together when Danger Mouse called upon Jones to contribute vocals to his acclaimed 2011 album ROME, and their connection proved deep enough that they decided to collaborate on Jones’ fifth studio album.

Little Broken Hearts, which features original songs co-written by Jones and Danger Mouse, is therefore being described as “the fascinating next step in the artistic evolution of one of the most intriguing singers to have emerged in the past decade”.

Together they have married their highly personal styles to create an entirely new sound.

The songs were all built from the ground up in the studio, with Jones and Danger Mouse sharing all the songwriting credits and performing the majority of the instrumental parts; Jones on piano, keyboards, bass, and guitar, and Danger Mouse contributing drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, and string arrangements.
