NEW YORK (Billboard) - Her new album is entitled "The Fall," but Norah Jones is waiting until spring to embark on a 36-city tour, which kicks off March 5 in Tulsa, Okla.

The trek will see the veteran jazz-pop singer play midsize theaters in major cities such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago -- but also hit many smaller markets like Akron, Ohio; El Paso, Texas; and Mobile, Ala. Several shows go on sale December 4, with the rest becoming available before the end of the year.

"The Fall" is Jones' fourth studio album. She's riding a wave of critical praise for the set, on which Jones takes a more roots-rock approach to songwriting, leaving behind the slow balladry that defined her early work. "The Fall" features collaborations with Okkervil River's Will Sheff, Ryan Adams, Marc Ribot and Smokey Hormel.

Jones' fans seem to welcome the new approach. Last week, "The Fall" debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, selling 180,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

While fans become acquainted with her new tunes over the next few months, they can also look forward to three new remixes -- all of which will be released January 12 as digital downloads and on vinyl. The single "Chasing Pirates" will get remixed by Santigold as well as Beck's remix collective the Droogs. The song "That's What I Said," which is featured on the latest "NCIS" soundtrack, gets the remix treatment from the Beastie Boys' Adrock and Mike D.
