With a New Song, Norah Jones' Big-Screen Bow Gets a Dallas Date
Norah Jones and Natalie Portman share My Blueberry Nights
Almost a year after its debut at the Cannes Film Festival, Wong Kar Wai's first English-language film, the not-well-received My Blueberry Nights, has a Dallas release date: April 18 at the Angelika Film Center. (Though clips from the film, including the famous final scene and this one featuring Chan Marshall, have been showing up online for months.)
Its local connection, of course, is some former Popolos pianist and Arts Magnet grad by the name of Norah Jones -- who, turns out, will be on The Late Show with David Letterman on April 2 to perform her sole song on the soundtrack, "The Story," which gets its release April 1. Only, if you're dying to hear the song now, well, it's streaming at this very moment on the official site for the soundtrack, which also features the likes of Cat Power, Ry Cooder, Mavis Staples and Amos Lee. The trailer's after the jump. --Robert Wilonsky
