Norah Jones, Danger Mouse and Russ Meyer's 'Mudhoney'

The album cover to Norah Jones' new Little Broken Hearts bears a startling and intentional resemblance to the poster advertising Russ Meyer's 1965 movie Mudhoney, which also gave the gnarly Mark Arm-fronted Seattle grunge band its name.

In my interview with her in today's Inquirer, Jones explains why and how the image of Maitland - which she describes as "a little scary, a little vulnerable" - that hung in the Los Angeles studio owned by Danger Mouse, a.k.a. producer Brian Burton, impacted Little Broken Hearts.

Jones plays the Mann Center in Fairmount Park tonight. "Happy Pills" from Little Broken Hearts is below. My review of the abum from when it was released in May is here. The Mudhoney trailer is also below.
