VH1 will present the world premiere of the music video for Norah Jones' "Chasing Pirates," which debuts online at today Tuesday, October 27, 2009 and will air on VH1 Top 20 Video Countdown at 9AM ET on Saturday, October 31.

"Chasing Pirates" is the lead single from Norah Jones' highly anticipated upcoming album The Fall, which will be released by EMI’s Blue Note Records on November 17.

The video, which was shot in Jones’ hometown of New York City, was directed by Rich Lee, who has worked on the visual effects for all three of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Lee has also directed music videos by everyone from Fergie (“Clumsy”) to Michael Buble (“Haven’t Met You Yet”).

Jones has also announced a first run of TV appearances around the release of The Fall.

The multiple Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter will be appearing on CBS Late Show With David Letterman (November 11), Comedy Central The Colbert Report (November 18), and ABC Good Morning America (November 16) and The View (November 23).

“Chasing Pirates,” which was featured on Rolling Stone’s “Hot List,” immediately announces a new direction for Jones. Entertainment Weekly wrote that "Chasing Pirates' is a bluesy surprise and welcome change of pace," adding that "Jones' voice remains as lovely as ever."

"For this record, I just had a sound in my head," Jones says. "I wanted the grooves to be more present and heavy. And I also just wanted to do something different."

That new sound began to present itself on one of the first songs Jones wrote for the project.

"About a year ago, I did some demos in my home studio," she says. "I had some friends come in and we figured out a cool arrangement for 'Chasing Pirates,' with a cool drum part. It went somewhere I didn't expect it to go, and that became a direction to look in."
