The folk and jazz singer revealed to the Telegraph her half-sister Anoushka tried to teach Jones how to play the ancient Indian instrument several years ago.
She explained, "It was fun, but you have to twist your back all around. My dad and Anoushka both have twisted backs from playing so much. And you have to sit cross-legged. See, that ain't cool! I can't imagine doing a world tour cross-legged!"
Asked about whether she would ever record a song with Shankar, now nearly 90 years old, Jones says, "I would love to do it, but I would love to just spend time with him and not put pressure on it for some public reason. He comes alive when he talks about music so it's definitely a great experience."
Jones' also reveals that her fourth album 'The Fall,' -- produced by Kings of Leon producer Angelo Petraglia -- is her most personally confident release yet. It was the first record written without co-writing help from former long-term boyfriend Lee Alexander. She describes the album as "about me -- just going through a big transition overall. Breaking up, turning 30, changing my band, getting a dog, cutting my hair."
Nominated for 'Best International Female' at this year's Brit Awards, Jones' has a new single 'Stuck' out on Mar. 8.
