Pick Me Up Off The Floor is the eighth studio album by American pianist and singer-songwriter Norah Jones, released in June 2020 via Blue Note Records.

Norah Jones didn't mean to make another album. After she finished touring Day Breaks (2016), her beloved return to piano-based jazz, she walked away from the well-worn album cycle grind and into an unfamiliar territory without boundaries: a series of short sessions with an ever-changing array of collaborators resulting in a diverse stream of singles (with Mavis Staples, Rodrigo Amarante, Thomas Bartlett, Tarriona Tank Ball, and more). Songs from these sessions were released on her 2019 album Begin Again.

But then slowly but surely, the session songs Jones hadn't released congealed into that very thing she'd meant to avoid; an album.

Pick Me Up Off The Floor is not some disjointed collage of songs. It holds together beautifully, connected by the sly groove of her piano trios, lyrics that confront loss and portend hope, and a heavy mood that leans into darkness before ultimately finding the light.

The backbone of this album was formed early in an especially fruitful session with her go-to drummer Brian Blade who appears on six of the album’s eleven tracks. Other musicians who contribute throughout include bassists Christopher Thomas, John Patitucci, Jesse Murphy, and Josh Lattanzi, drummers Nate Smith, Dan Rieser, and Josh Adams, keyboardist Pete Remm, pedal steel guitarist Dan Iead, violinist Mazz Swift, violist Ayane Kozasa, cellist Paul Wiancko, percussionist Mauro Refosco, background vocalists Ruby Amanfu and Sam Ashworth, and the horn section of trumpeter Dave Guy and tenor saxophonist Leon Michels.

"I don't know if I was just in a zone or if this process turned it on, but I’ve felt more creative in the last year than I ever have," says Jones.

By completely rethinking the way she made music, Jones discovered a new wellspring of inspiration, with the fortunate if unexpected result of making an album of tremendous depth and beauty that she was not trying to make.

This album is on black vinyl with a printed inner sleeve, pressed in Europe via Blue Note Records.
