About this album

Not Too Late is the third studio album by jazz and pop musician Norah Jones, released in January 2007. It was produced by Lee Alexander, the songwriter and bassist featured on Jones’s previous albums, Come Away with Me and Feels like Home. The album reached number one in the United States and the United Kingdom. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, making it Jones’ third consecutive number-one album. It was the tenth best-selling album of 2007, according to IFPI.


Background and recording

Jones wrote most of the songs on the album when she was on tour during 2004 and 2005; for example, “Until the End” was written in the South Pacific, “Rosie’s Lullaby” in Australia, and “The Sun Doesn’t Like You” in Brazil.Jones wrote “Thinking About You” in 1999 with Ilhan Ersahin, her then-bandmate in Wax Poetic, but she thought it was too much of a pop song for her to record and rejected a version she recorded for Feels like Home.Jones had an acoustic guitar with her on the tour and wrote more songs with it than she previously had: “The guitar is simple and a lot easier to carry than a piano”, she said.

After the tour concluded, Jones began recording the album with Alexander, who “tweak” the lyrics of the songs and “pulled into better shape”, according to Jones. Not Too Late was mostly recorded at Jones’s home studio and is the first album Jones recorded without producer Arif Mardin, who died in the summer of 2006. Jones described the sessions as “fun, relaxed and easy” and without a deadline; executives at Blue Note Records reportedly did not know they were recording an album.
