VIDEO: Norah Jones "Flipside"

April 18, 2017


Norah Jones has released a powerful new video for “Flipside” from her acclaimed album Day Breaks. The video was directed by Sam Kuhn and pays homage to the vital role of protest throughout American history. The most rhythmically charged song on the album “Flipside” also has a pointed socio-political charge to it. Norah sets a driving bass line with her left hand and Dr. Lonnie Smith’s organ swirls overhead while her vocal builds to a shout at the chorus: “I can’t stand when you tell me to get back / If we’re all free, then why does it seem / We can’t just be

“I was really inspired by the news and the stuff that’s been going on in the world and in this country the last couple years,” Norah says. “It’s been really volatile and crazy, and I was listening to that Les McCann song ‘Compared to What’ and very much influenced by how just grooving and amazing it is but it’s also very political and it’s just from the gut.”
