That said, those familiar with her contribution to the LP will know that this couple aren't as odd as you'd think. Rather than one adapting to the other, both Jones and Burton have met each other somewhere in the middle on her fifth studio opus Little Broken Hearts. The result is a combination of his dark and wistful production and her achingly soft vocal that can be heard on trailer song 'Happy Pills'.
Jones sings of heartbreak throughout with more contempt than we've ever heard from her before. "It's alright and it's okay/ I don't need you anyway," she scorns with breathy disdain on 'Say Goodbye' - a track that will no doubt raise a brow from Lana Del Rey. Her angst reaches its most unnerving on 'Take It Back' and 'She's 22' - the latter a barely-there ballad in which she asks: "Does she make you happy?"
Her stages of post-relationship grief come to a climax on penultimate track 'Miriam'; a moody and atmospheric number with just a hint of menace that conjures up images of a pain-stricken Jones clutching to a bottle of gin as she unpicks the details of her lover's affair. It might be dark, but this stunning collection of anguish is the brightest she's shined in a long time.
