Listen to Norah Jones’ earliest demo Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most

The super deluxe edition of Norah Jones’ breakthrough album Come Away With Me features 22 previously unreleased tracks, including the original demos from the album.

That includes a recording of the jazz standard Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most, which Jones had recorded in her high school band room accompanying herself on piano.

You can listen to the demo below.

Come Away With Me was released 20 years ago in 2002 and turned Jones into an international sensation, reaching No. 1 in 20 countries, selling nearly 30 million copies, and sweeping the 2003 Grammy Awards with eight wins, including album of the year, record of the year, song of the year and best new artist.

This spring, Blue Note will mark the 20th anniversary of Come Away With Me with a 44-track collection that reveals the full story of the making of the album. The super deluxe edition, produced by Eli Wolf, includes a remaster of the original record, produced by Arif Mardin; the complete First Session demos Jones made after being signed; and the first version of the album she recorded at Allaire Studios with producer Craig Street.
