Overview

Dark Night Of The Soul is an album by audio auteur Danger Mouse and the already much-missed Sparklehorse. The record sees the pair joined by the following remarkable roll call of guests: The Flaming Lips, Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), Jason Lytle (Grandaddy), Julian Casablancas (The Strokes), Black Francis (The Pixies), Iggy Pop, David Lynch, James Mercer (The Shins/Broken Bells), Nina Persson (The Cardigans), Suzanne Vega, and Vic Chesnutt.

Rumors of this mysterious collaborative project began to circulate in early 2009, sparking widespread anticipation and excitement. Now, following months of talks, Danger Mouse and EMI are excited and proud to release Dark Night Of The Soul. While this beautiful, haunting record's creation is undoubtedly a cause for celebration, the news is shadowed by sadness following the recent passing of Mark Linkous, who released and performed under the Sparklehorse pseudonym. Dark Night Of The Soul will now stand as a de facto tribute to this stunningly talented yet often-overlooked artist.

In addition to featuring on two songs, celebrated film director David Lynch has created a series of original photographs for Dark Night Of The Soul, adding a spectacular visual dimension that will be incorporated in to the project's artwork. From the Label
