Adele‘s 21 is an undeniable artistic and commercial success, scoring six Grammy wins and moving over eight million copies, but as we pointed out last week, it measures up short when compared to the pop culture impact that Norah Jones made when she landed on the scene in 2002. Norah’s debut album, Come Away With Me, won eight Grammys and sold 10.8 million copies, making it the most popular album of the last 10 years.
Over the course of the last 10 years, Norah has released three other studio albums, each of which has performed very well in its own right. On May 1, she’ll drop her fifth studio album, …Little Broken Hearts, the debut single from which is a rollicking little number called “Happy Pills.” Norah wrote and recorded both this song and album with superproducer Danger Mouse, which might explain why the groovy, propulsive bass line that runs throughout the course of the song is so catchy. The video for “Happy Pills”, which was shot in upstate New York and directed by Isaiah Seret, will premiere at midnight tonight, but to whet your appetite, we’ve got this exclusive behind-the-scenes video to share with you guys.
So, what’s the video about? “It’s like a murder-not-so-much-of-a-mystery,” Norah explains. “It’s more like a murder-thriller. A thrilla!” Watch the video above to get some more clues, and be sure to come back to VH1 Tuner tonight at midnight to see the whole shebang!
