Clean Out Your Ears This Morning With Some Q-Tip

That's "Life is Better" above, the latest leaked single from Q-Tip's upcoming disc, The Renaissance. And, in case you can't pick up the hint from listening to the track, yep, that's North Texas' own Norah Jones taking care of the former Tribe leader's chorus.

Nice.

Seems like Ms. Jones, who's pretty cool in her own right, has been trying to up her non-Starbucks-associated cool quotient of late between this and her punk rock side project El Madmo, no?

Anyway, Q-Tip stops by Dallas later this month with The Cool Kids for a gig at the House of Blues. See you there, I'm sure. --Pete Freedman
