‘Dark Night Of The Soul’ from Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse confirmed for July

We’re very pleased to be able to confirm the release in July of ‘Dark Night Of The Soul’, an album by audio auteur Danger Mouse and the already much-missed Sparklehorse.

For this project the duo were joined by a very impressive list of collaborators: The Flaming Lips, Gruff Rhys, Jason Lytle, Julian Casablancas, Black Francis, Iggy Pop, David Lynch, James Mercer, Nina Persson, Suzanne Vega and Vic Chesnutt.

Dark Night Of The Soul

Rumours of the album have been circulating for over a year, and while a ‘Dark Night Of The Soul’ limited edition art book and blank CDR and audio-visual gallery installation were produced, this will be the first time the music has been officially available. The album will come out on July 12 through Parlophone/EMI (July 13 in the US where it will be released by EMI’s Capitol Records).

The exciting news that the album now has a confirmed release date is of course shadowed by the sadness following the recent passing of Mark Linkous, aka Sparklehorse. ‘Dark Night Of The Soul’ now stands as a de facto tribute to this well-loved artist and it has received the blessing of Mark’s family.
