Norah Jones has added an Atlanta date to her spring tour.

The jazz-pop singer unveiled her first album in four years, “Day Breaks,” in October and will launch a U.S. tour in support of the release later this month and pick it up in 2017.

Jones is slated to play the Fox Theatre at 8 p.m. March 11. Tickets will go on sale at noon on Nov. 18 via www.foxtheatre.org, the venue box office and by calling 1-855-285-8499. Tickets are $56 and $71.50. There is a four-ticket limit per order. 

The nine-time Grammy winner who vaulted to stardom in 2002 with the much-lauded “Come Away with Me,” returns to her piano-based sounds on the new record, which features nine new songs and a trio of covers.
