DANGER MOUSE & DANIELE LUPPI : ROME | OUT NOW

by

Listen to samples of the album below.

The long-anticipated brainchild of producer-composer Danger Mouse and Italian composer Daniele Luppi, Rome,  is finally here.

More than five years in the making, the project assembles many of the surviving performers of classic ’60s and ’70s Ennio Morricone scores — and, in half a dozen memorable cases, pairs them up with the vocals of Norah Jones or The White Stripes’ Jack White.

If it weren’t for the unmistakably contemporary voices among its ranks — White’s in particular —Rome could just as easily have emerged from a vault, sealed 40 or even 50 years ago. That’s clearly the point: From start to finish, the album provides a timeless, arduously arranged backdrop to past generations’ visions of panoramic vistas and blood-stained betrayals.
