Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Not too long ago, we passed along word of Norah Jones' next release,

a compilation of collaborations she's taken part in over the course of her career called ...Featuring

. Among the songs included on the disc? A cut from Jones' near-anonymous slowcore and punk side-project, El Madmo.

In the above clip, as she'll do for each of the songs on ...Featuring in the coming days, Jones talks the included El Madmo track, "The Best Part," which, she admits, is among the least obscure El Madmo songs. And that's why it was included on this disc, she explains. Also? Because the rest of El Madmo's songs use "had the word 'fuck' in it."

After the jump, check out another clip, this one finding Jones' collaborators talking about working with the Booker T. Washington High School alum.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
