Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse: Exclusive First Listen!

Controversial producer Danger Mouse and mysterious songwriter Sparklehorse team up with legendary director David Lynch with the album Dark Night of the Soul, but it may never see the light of day.

Thankfully NPR.org is currently streaming the album in its entirety (hurry, it may not last!) >>>

From NPR.org:
It turns out Dark Night Of The Soul is an album and the songs were written by Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse (Mark Linkous), though the myriad singers featured on each track also had a big hand in composing and producing the work. The album was initially going to be packaged with a book of photos taken by David Lynch. But now there’s word that the music may never be officially released at all.

An unnamed spokesperson for Danger Mouse says that “due to an ongoing dispute with EMI” the book of photographs will “now come with a blank, recordable CD-R. All copies will be clearly labeled: ‘For legal reasons, enclosed CD-R contains no music. Use it as you will.'” While offering no specifics, EMI has acknowledged the legal dispute with Danger Mouse and released a statement saying, “Danger Mouse is a brilliant, talented artist for whom we have enormous respect. We continue to make every effort to resolve this situation and we are talking to Brian Burton (Danger Mouse) directly. Meanwhile, we need to reserve our rights.”
