Norah Jones just went from cute and innocent to seksi and wild!
For her latest album, Little Broken Hearts, the soulful singer was inspired to unleash her inner vixen by a poster for the 1965 film Mudhoney, which she saw on the wall of the studio she was recording in.
We gotta admit, we're lookin' and we're likin' what we see! Norah should try experimenting with this look more often, don't U think?

But holy hell, are we glad that she is!
Check out the singer's appearance with hip hop group White On Rice, comprised of Maria Falgione and Sarah Oda, in their video for Deal Breaker (above)!
LOVE this sooo much!
And it's so much fun to see her being silly and doing a little bit of the acting stuff again!
More! More! More!

While we don't exactly agree with how Amy Winehouse can sometimes conduct herself, we do have to say we're pretty excited to hear a duet between her and the legendary Tony Bennett.
The two singers recorded the song together in the famous Abbey Road Studios, and the collab is supposed to appear on Bennett's upcoming Duets II, which comes out September 20th.
Chances are we'll probably hear it before then!
So who else is on the record?
Wow, Tony! Sounds pretty epic to us!
We can't wait to hear the album, that's for sure!
Are U looking forward to Duets II??
