Norah Jones has set May 1 as the release date for Little Broken Hearts (Blue Note/EMI), her upcoming new album produced by Danger Mouse (a.k.a. Brian Burton). Jones also revealed the album cover and track listing for the 12-song effort, which features original songs co-written by the duo. Jones drew the inspiration for the album cover from the vintage movie posters that Burton has hanging in his Los Angeles studio.

"Brian has this great collection of Russ Meyer posters in his studio, and this particular one, called Mudhoney, was right over the couch where I sat every day," Jones recalls. "I always was looking at it and thinking, 'That's so cool, I want to look like her!' I remember staring at the poster the whole time we made the record. It's a great visual."

As previously reported, Jones and Danger Mouse first worked together when he called upon her to contribute vocals to his 2011 album, Rome. After Jones wound up singing three songs on the record, she and Danger Mouse reconvened in his Los Angeles studio this past fall. Together they wrote all the songs and performed the majority of the instrumental parts for her new effort: Jones played piano, keyboards, bass and guitar, and Danger Mouse added drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and string arrangements.

Jones will tour extensively in 2012, performing at a mixture of festivals, amphitheatres and theatres in the U.S. and abroad. North American tour dates will be revealed shortly, but in the immediate future Jones will be performing at SXSW in Austin next month. She will debut songs from Little Broken Hearts with her new band at La Zona Rosa on March 17, and she'll also be performing with The Little Willies at Waterloo Records on March 15 at 1 p.m. and Antone's on March 15 at 10 p.m.

The track listing for Little Broken Hearts is as follows:

1. "Good Morning"
2. "Say Goodbye"
3. "Little Broken Hearts"
4. "She's 22"
5. "Take It Back"
6. "After The Fall"
7. "4 Broken Hearts"
8. "Travelin' On"
9. "Out On The Road"
10. "Happy Pills"
11. "Miriam"
12. "All A Dream"
