DALLAS, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- With her second album in stores, Norah Jones said others have pressured her to worry about measuring up to the success she enjoyed with her debut.
"Everyone and their mama asks me about the pressure -- even my mama asks me about it," the 24-year-old singer said in Thursday's Dallas Morning News.
"It's funny ... If nobody said anything, I wouldn't feel it because I don't put that kind of pressure on myself ... I don't expect 18 million people to buy my CD again. I can't ever live up to that."
The piano-playing Jones swept last year's Grammy Awards after selling 18 million copies of her debut CD, "Come Away With Me.
The new album, "Feels Like Home," made with the legendary producer Arif Mardin, who has worked with Aretha Franklin and Dusty Springfield, follows the same design as the debut, but with some surprises.
The melancholy first single, "Sunrise," does not stray far from typical Jones fare, but a bluegrass duet with Dolly Parton, "Creepin' In," is a total departure.
"I wanted some variety. I didn't want to make a record that only had one slow mood," Jones said. "I didn't want to make the same record again."
