Norah Jones: The Phenomenon
Deena, Lori Maier & Norah Jones at Chick Singer Night 15th Anniversary show
The phenomenon that is Norah Jones continues with her new album 'Feels Like Home' which managed to sell more than 1 million copies in the US alone in its first week of release - the first time in almost three years that any album has sold over 1 million copies there in its debut week. To top it off, the album skyrocketed to the #1 spot in at least 16 countries and is currently the biggest selling new album of the year to date around the world. Locally, the album debuted at #2 behind Condoblin boy Shannon Noll who spoiled the party (more details below). Head of EMI's Blue Note label Bruce Lundvall said, "This is the kind of achievement that one can only expect from a truly original, extraordinary artist like Norah."
It's not very often that an artist can span so many genres and enjoy such broad appeal. But that's what happens when the music is this good." Meanwhile, her debut album 'Come Away With Me' has also re-entered the ARIA Top 20 after close to 100 weeks on the charts and more than 9x platinum. Apart from being the #1 International album of 2003, it's now the biggest jazz record in Australian music history. Fresh from presenting an award at the Grammys last month, Jones is expected to announce an extensive worldwide tour soon with dates extending into 2005 and including Australia.
