New album features stellar line-up
Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse have posted a cryptic message about a new collaborative album featuring a slew of famous guests.
Although neither Danger Mouse or Sparklehorse's Mark Linkous have said anything official publicly of a joint project, a poster announcing new album Dark Night Of The Soul was sent to bloggers 31 March.
The poster, posted on Onethirtybpm.com, states that the album will feature the following guests:
Black Francis (Pixies)
Julian Casablancas (The Strokes)
The Flaming Lips
David Lynch (film director)
Jason Lytle (ex-Grandaddy)
James Mercer (The Shins)
Nina Persson (The Cardigans)
Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals)
Other than the poster simply states the album is "coming summer 2009".
Okay, it's 1 April today but given that the last Sparklehorse album, 2006's Dreamt For Light Years In The Belly Of A Mountain, was partly produced by Danger Mouse, it looks highly plausible.
