Norah Jones teams up with Danger Mouse on her new single "Happy Pills" (Blue Note), and the results are predictably stellar. Jones is upbeat, even while declaring, "Gotta get you out of my head," over a chugging Danger Mouse guitar line that echoes another of the producer's collaborations, the Black Keys' "Everlasting Light." "Happy Pills" shows how Jones is still looking to stretch musically, while maintaining her core appeal, and is destined to be in heavy rotation at cafes near you.
