Luppi

As previously talked about,

"The long-anticipated brainchild of producer-composer Danger Mouse and Italian composer Daniele Luppi, Rome benefits from a bit of context. 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."
[stream the whole new album @ NPR]
In related news, "Jack White has contributed to a new project spearheaded by Bob Dylan that pays tribute to Hank Williams."
"I did a project with Bob Dylan: he put together 20 or 25 people to finish writing Hank Williams songs that only had lyrics and didn't have music ... I had to write music for Hank Williams' lyrics," White said. "I looked through all the piles of lyrics, and one of 'em just kept speaking to me. Sometimes you think it's gonna be really hard to find my spot, and then it picks it for you. You don't even have to choose it; it just picks it for you."
In related to that news, Steve Earle's new album also pays tribute to Hank Williams. He played Leno last night, but that video is a pain to get to work, but you can watch one of him covering "I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive" recently in Seattle, below...

I'd rail Norah Jones.

I'd say he looks more like Johnny Depp. And Danger Mouse looks like Wyatt Cynac.

Jack first mentioned that Bob Dylan project 5 years ago. It's not news.

Yeah we all know Jack is the artist-to-end-all-artists and Norah is just a mainstream your-mom's-music cornball but JESUS H look at her. Holy moly! She was always a looker but woah johnson. And Jack, One-Time-Mr.Gorgeous, it's clear the freak side of his brain has won out over the side that provides a decent look. Of course he also lost this battle a long time ago.

JESUS Norah.

yeah, i gotta agreee, wow, norah is looking stunning. and i don't think she's all your mom's singer, etc. she's done some pretty hip and cool side projects and is always lending her voice to interesting projects. i mean, i could think of a project she might want to lend her mouth to as well, but that's another topic for the fleshbot site, not here. and jack white is looking badass as usual.

If he were a gay vampire with AIDS, yes.

Danger Mouse looks like a side project between Jack White's grundle and a bloody vaginal belch from Norah Jones. Eat, Pray, Queef son!

if the italian dude was a bit darker, slightly heavier and had more stubble, he'd be a dead ringer for the game show host from slum dog millionaire

Why was 6 afraid of 7?

It wasn't. Numbers are not sentient and thus incapable of feeling fear.

The Jack White school for kids who can't read good and want to discover other good stuff too.

If you rearrange the letters of Danger Mouse you get Enraged Sumo, or there will probably be a bunch of tools from Brooklyn with gay chest tattoos. Oh wait, I guess that second one has a few too many letters. Cock Goblins...

The dude on the far right kind of looks like the maitre d' from ferris bueller's day off

He also looks like your scrotum, AKA your mom's face hipster fuck!

that doesn't even make any sense..

I wonder how Hank 111 feels about his grandpas songs or lyrics being controlled by large record companies and having some narcissist like Jack White do them. Dylan I can understand doing it respectful, but not that fashion kid.

jack white is looking pretty healthy

Hmm, Norah does not look too jazzed to be there. And Dangermouse looks like he's posing for a mugshot. And don't get me started on those two guys on either side. But y'know you can always read more into the image than is imputed by the surface, cuz y'know a picture is worth a thousand of those...umm...things...that...yeah.
