Pick Me Up Off The Floor, the new album from Norah Jones, is coming in May. Like last year’s singles collection Begin Again, it features songs cowritten with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy. One of those is out today as the project’s lead single.
Jones cowrote and produced “I’m Alive” with Tweedy, who plays electric and acoustic guitar and bass on the track. His son, Spencer Tweedy, handles the drums. It’s the kind of casual amble you’d expect from this team, at once rootsy and jazzy, like settling into a comfortable sweater. The lyrics are heavy, though: “You feel your soul get hollowed out/ While the world implodes, you just live without.”
