Fuse's love of Norah Jones is no secret—we gave her SXSW gig a rave review and we can't wait to see her live this summer on tour in support of her new album Little Broken Hearts, produced by Danger Mouse. So this morning we're pretty excited that yet another song from that LP has dropped online before its official May 1 release. Listen to "Travelin' On" below. 

So what do we learn here? Love hurts. The album was written following Jones' split from her fiction writer boyfriend, and these songs are predominantly loaded with downcast emotion, from the lyrics to the music. On "Travelin' On," Jones coos about moving on from a relationship, over spare and tender cello and acoustic guitar strums. 

"Call me when you get where you're going / I'll keep traveling on... Don't be too hard on yourself... We won't leave this place any worse than when we came."

Ooooof. Love this girl. Listen to "Travelin' On" below, then tell us what you think in the comment section. And for more Jones, check out the new LP's first single, the catchy and swaying pop ballad "Happy Pills."
