Norah Jones Plays Disgruntled ’50s Housewife In Latest Music Video For ‘Happy Pills’

Ten years later and I could probably recognize Norah Jones‘ voice and the darling ditty “Don’t Know Why” or “Come Away with Me” within a note or two. And I wasn’t even a huge fan. She was just larger than life and those songs were inescapable. After watching the video for “Happy Pills” I’m anxiously awaiting her latest album Little Broken Hearts, which is set to be released on May 1st. It’s been three years since Miss Jones put out a record and she certainly took time and care to create not only the music, but an overall nostalgic and aesthetically pleasing feeling to the project. The forthcoming LP, produced by Danger Mouse, is shaping up to be an intriguing evolution for the veteran artist. Plus, the music video is awesome and makes me think.. hmm don’t mess with Norah Jones or she will push your car into a pond! Seriously though, it’s a great song and the video is a captivating vignette that includes great 50s style costumes and set dressings and Norah looking stunning meets innocent meets bad ass. It’s a nice 4 minute teaser until the next episode of Mad Men!
