Norah Jones Releases Soulful New Single “Tragedy”: Listen
The Queen of Coffee Shop Music is alive and well, people! Norah Jones has shared her single “Tragedy,” the latest track off her forthcoming album Day Breaks (out October 7).
A soulful slow-burner, this number finds Jones singing about a man who falls victim to alcoholism. “Babies and a patient wife/ they just wouldn’t have to keep him high/ so he gave them up just to fill his cup/ every sip would make him feel alive,” she croons, her husky vocals floating across a piano-laden melody. It’s melancholic, soothing and perhaps best listened to with a good cappuccino in hand.
