One of the year's most anticipated albums has arrived a few weeks ahead of schedule!

Norah Jones' Little Broken Hearts, produced by Brian Burton, aka Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley, Broken Bells), is streaming now over at NPR in advance of its May 1 release. The album's sound is a big transformation for the jazz chanteuse, and the difference is evident from the get-go. The album opens with "Good Morning," a slow-strumming guitar tune with breathy, heartbroken vocals and Mouse's signature atmospherics fizzling in the background. It's a gorgeous song and a telling kickoff to this must-hear album.

So, do yourself a favor, and head over to NPR now to listen to Little Broken Hearts. Like it? Love it? Tell us what you think of Norah Jones' latest album in the comments below.
