Norah Jones - Sinkin' Soon

"Sinkin' Soon" is a song written by Norah Jones and Lee Alexander, and is the second single from Jones's third solo album, Not Too Late (2007). It was released in the United States on March 26, 2007 (see 2007 in music).
Alexander wrote most of the song, with Jones composing the bridge. According to Jones, they couldn't play the whole song before they recorded it, so they went out for dinner and drank beer. "I guess we needed a little bit of that drunken sailor vibe because we came back and recorded this on the first take", Jones said. Jones's old friend J. Walter Hawkes contributed a trombone solo, and M. Ward performed backing vocals. Pot-and-pan percussion similar to the work of Tom Waits is featured on the song; Jones's teapot broke during the recording session
