On last night’s episode of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Norah Jones came through to perform the lounge-noir title track to her new Danger Mouse-produced album Little Broken Hearts. It’s the sort of song that could’ve ended up on the soundtrack of one of those Tarantino-ripoff movies that proliferated during the ’90s, and Jones strapped on a guitar, a good look for her, to give it a smoky reading.
Last night’s show also had a bonus online performance, but this one didn’t come from Jones. Instead, Ice-T, another guest on last night’s episode, returned to the first time he portrayed a police officer on a popular piece of entertainment, teaming up with the Roots to snarl through the New Jack City soundtrack nugget “New Jack Hustler.” Watch both below.
Little Broken Hearts is out now on Blue Note.
