Danger Mouse and Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse announced almost three years ago that they would be working together on a new collaborative project, but as of yesterday, when a poster for the project was delivered to our offices, it looks like the duo of "Dangerhorse" are engaging a wide spectrum of talent to help out on the new record.
Dark Night of the Soul is set to come out this summer, and though no further information on the album has been offered, the list of special guests -- released only via the poster -- makes the new project look like it could be one of the most eclectic collaborations we've seen in a long while.
Featuring Black Francis, Julian Casablancas, The Flaming Lips, Iggy Pop, David Lynch, and James Mercer, among a bunch of others, Dark Night of the Soul is bound to offer us an immense amount of ear-candy come the summer. And lets face it, who needs supergroups like Chickenfoot when you've got the likes of Dangerhorse giving you all of this and more on one awesome album?
