Am I Just Getting Old Or Is The New Norah Jones Single Kind Of Amazing?

I really can't believe my favourite jam at the moment is a Norah Jones song. It's like the world has been turned upside down. Somewhere in the suburbs my mum is probably driving to Coles blasting Skrillex right now! But back to "Happy Pills". How good is it? Produced by Danger Mouse (AKA the non-Cee Lo member of Gnarls Barkley), the breezy break-up anthem is everything and more. The subtle but completely addictive avalanche of hooks makes Norah's best single since "Don't Know Why" an instantly hummable delight. I also love low key and, dare I say it, vampy she soundson that track. If this is any indication of the material on her soon-to-be released ...Little Broken Hearts album, I'm on board big time. Check it out below.

It has a Motels "Total Control" feel about it - in regards to the start and backing beat.
