To be fair, Brian Joseph Burton has given the home of Coldplay plenty of reasons to trust him since his initial spat with the company in 2004.
That was the year that Danger Mouse sampled The Beatles without permission, mixing the Fab Four’s ‘White Album’ with JayZ’s
‘The Black Album’ to create the controversial, and instantly vetoed ‘The Grey Album’.
The producer’s plan to release just 3,000 copies of the mashup was quickly halted by the label (copyright holders of The Beatles)
only to see Internet protestors organise a 24-hour free give-a-way – tagged ‘Grey Tuesday’ – in which the record was downloaded over 100,000 times.
EMI had thrown water on a fat fire and made a star out of their target, but the following three years saw Danger Mouse produce albums for Gorillaz,
Sparklehorse and The Good, the Bad and the Queen, all released by Burton’s previous rivals.
All had been forgiven (no doubt because
‘The Grey Album’ hadn’t reaped any financial reward) and both parties set about planning a unique Danger Mouse/ Sparklehorse
project with film auteur David Lynch ‘Dark Night Of The Soul’.
It’s here, in case you haven’t heard, that the line between heroes and villains gets thumbed into a greasy smudge.
Arranged and produced by Sparklehorse main man Mark Linkous and Danger Mouse,
‘Dark Night of The Soul’ is more than a 13-track album that features guest vocals from Julian Casablancas, Black Francis,
Nina Persson, Suzanne Vega, Iggy Pop, Wayne Coyne and Jason Lytle it’s the soundtrack to an audio/ visual art collaboration with
David Lynch who has produced a 100+ page book of photography inspired by the record.
