Rome is Here!

Added on by Alex Koehne.

I first read about this album months and months ago and have been very excited for it ever since. Just read the description from iTunes and tell me it doesn't sound totally awesome:

"The collaboration between producer/multi-instrumentalist Brian "Danger Mouse" Burton (Broken Bells, Gnarls Barkley) and the Italian arranger/film scorer Daniele Luppi (John Legend, Mike Patton) was, in part, inspired by the music heard in the great spaghetti Westerns - and it sounds just as dreamy. Rome was recorded in the Italian capital city with musicians who also worked on Ennio Morricone's historic film scoring sessions. Jack White and Norah Jones sing on three songs each, sounding more like close friends stopping by rather than celebrity walk-ons. The instrumental tracks, which range from just over 30 seconds to under three-and-a-half minutes, are flush with rich strings, heavenly celesta, and mysterious guitars. And when soprano Edda Dell'Orso (who sang on Morricone's The Good, The Bad and the Ugly soundtrack) coos wordlessly, we're even more entranced."

I've only listened through it once so far, but I totally dug it. Just started play through number 2.

You can buy it at iTunes or among other outlets. I bet it would be amazing on vinyl if you are into that sort of thing. Cheaper at Amazon by fifty cents, fyi.
