So ... starting from left. David Lynch, Sparkle Horse, & Danger Mouse
Dark Night Of the Soul is a project that was between Danger Mouse & Sparkle Horse and it included people like The Flaming Lips, Frank Black of the Pixies, Vic Chestnutt, Julian Casablancas from The Strokes, and Iggy Pop just to name a FEW.
It consisted of an album (duh!) but it was supposed to come with a book of pictures taken by Mr. David Lynch. Now, if you know about David Lynch's work besides the film then you know you're in for a treat. And that's not even including the magic that Danger Mouse & Sparkle Horse create when they make music (Gorillaz, Gnarles Barkley, The Grey album)
The posters for the deal first started showing up in the streets of Ausitn during SXSW. And then people (companies like NPR) started receiving the advertising postersbut with no return address and just weird stuff like that.
Well, due to some differences the album is yet to be released but the book is out and it comes with a blank CD-R for you to make your owc CD - with what you think should be the music that goes along to it.
BUT NPR IS STREAMING THE WHOLE ALBUM FOR EVERYONE TO LISTEN TO SO PLEASE CHECK IT OUT. IT IS WELL WORTH THE TIME. AND IT MAY BE YOUR ONLY CHANCE TO LISTEN TO THE ALBUM EVER!
SO GO HERE. AND READ THE FULL STORY AND BUY THE BOOK! ITS AWESOME!
