NPR is now streaming Dark Night of the Soul, a musical collaboration between Danger Mouse, Sparklehorse and David Lynch, featuring cameos by the Flaming Lips, Iggy Pop, Frank Black and Vic Chesnutt, among others.
It turns out Dark Night Of The Soul is an album and the songs were written by Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse, 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.'"
