Over the last decade, Norah Jones has become known for her ace collaborations with everyone from the Foo Fighters to Ray Charles. Now, the singer-songwriter will collect her best duets on a new disc titled …Featuring, which hits stores November 2nd. The disc features Jones' collaborations with the Willie Nelson, OutKast, Talib Kweli, Dolly Parton, Ryan Adams, M. Ward and more. (Full track listing below.) Also included: the new track "Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John," which Jones cut with Belle and Sebastian for the Scottish group's forthcoming fall album. "It's so exciting and flattering and fun when I get asked to sing with somebody that I admire," Jones said in a statement. "It takes you a little bit out of your comfort zone when you're doing something with another artist. You don't know what to expect — it's kind of like being a little kid and having a playdate."

Jones will spend the rest of the summer on the road for the west coast leg of her tour before reuniting with Willie Nelson at Farm Aid on October 2nd in Milwaukee, WI. Jones is also slated to appear on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on August 31st.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
