Rickie Lee Jones' new New Orleans-shot music video |

In June, the singular songwriter Rickie Lee Jones released "The Other Side of Desire," her first album of new original material in many years. The title, in part, referenced her move to New Orleans, where she'd last lived in the early 1980s and returned to, with her elderly dog, in 2014. She recorded the new project at the Music Shed studio in the Lower Garden District, with producer John Porter and a host of local talent including the Lost Bayou Ramblers' Louis Michot; Michot appears on a Cajun-inflected waltz, one of several songs on "The Other Side of Desire" soaked in the influence of Louisiana.

Jones recently released the first video from the new album, for the dreamy, ethereal "Jimmy Choos." In the artful black-and-white mini-flick directed by David McClister, the singer appears as sort of witchy fairy godmother with foil stars on her face and a sweet old car to cruise around in, picking up elegantly bedraggled New Orleanians and passing familiar spots like the St. Vincent de Paul cemetery, the Industrial Canal levee and the streets of the Bywater.
