WATCH: Norah Jones Chases Pirates in NYC


With Norah Jones’ new album, The Fall (out Nov. 17), your mom’s favorite piano crooner has transformed into a steamy soul-and-rock-singer with help from Ryan Adams, who lends a hand with songwriting, and Kings of Leon producer Jacquire King.

The music video for the album’s first track, “Chasing Pirates,” makes Jones a sailor chasing pirates down the avenues of New York City!

Over a Wurlitzer riff courtesy of Roots/Erykah Badu sideman James Poyser, Jones references old maritime maps, plots her course with a periscope, and sails her apartment building down the avenue. “My mind is racing from chasing pirates / and I don’t know how to slow it down,” she croons. Jones recruited director Rich Lee, the dude behind the effects for the Pirates Of The Carribean, to create the stunning visuals!
