Old Danger Mouse Album Finally Coming Out

Remember last year Danger Mouse was putting out an album featuring Julian Casablancas, Iggy Pop and others titled “Dark Night Of The Soul”? Well EMI had to put it on hold for some “dispute” and Danger Mouse put out a blank CD-R in protest. That’s pretty damn awesome. Well EMi is finally going to release the album. EMI says:

“We can confirm that EMI are working with Brian Burton AKA Danger Mouse again, and are delighted to be doing so. Further information on releases will follow shortly.”
