You might last remember Danger Mouse pulling a stunt with Sparklehorse in the summer of ’09, when he released a 100+ photo booklet packaged in a jewel case and included a blank CD-R inscribed with this message: “For Legal Reasons, enclosed CD-R contains no music. Use it as you will.” Finally, a year later, the long awaited album Dark Night Of The Soul will be available as of July 12. And yes, this time it will actually include the audio. The busy “producer of the decade”, as deemed by Paste Magazine, has also since been working on a new collaboration with Shins’ lead singer, James Mercer under the name Broken Bells. Together they will be performing off the new flawlessly composed album (OUT NOW) in company with The Morning Benders at The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco THIS FRIDAY May 21, starting at 9pm.
Listen to the new Danger Mouse project Broken Bells!
