The singer told the press that the daily news and “everything that happened in the world and the country over the last few years” inspired her to writing of the track.
“I was really affected by the news and everything that’s been going on in the world and in this country over the last couple years. It’s been really volatile and crazy,” Norah says.
“I was listening to the Les McCann song ‘Compared to What’ a lot and was very much influenced by how grooving and amazing it is but also how it’s very political and it’s just from the gut.”
The composition ‘Flipside’ is one of the most politicized tracks from the upcoming album ‘Day Breaks’, which will be released on October 7, 2016.
In addition to previously released ‘Carry On’ single, the record will include several original works of Nora and her cover versions of songs by Neil Young, Horace Silver and Duke Ellington.
Norah Jones will start her tour on October 18 and finish on December 10, 2016.
