Published Jan 24, 2012Last year, Danger Mouse had jazzy chanteuse Norah Jones jump on board as the female lead on Rome, his collaborative project with Italian composer Daniele Luppi. Well, the experiment must have gone extremely well, as Jones roped the super-producer into working on her next album, Little Broken Hearts.
A press release explains that Jones's fifth album, which was also co-written with Danger Mouse, furthers the "artistic evolution" that began with Rome. The pair began working on material sometime around the Rome sessions, but the duo reconvened at Danger Mouse's L.A.-area studio this past fall to finish up Little Broken Hearts.
The upcoming disc is being plugged as a real team effort, with Jones performing piano, keyboards, bass and guitar, while Danger Mouse comes in on drums, bass, guitar, keyboards and string arrangements.
A release date has yet been set for the album, which will be released by Blue Note/EMI, but news of both the set's expected spring street date and an impending tour schedule are expected sometime in the near future.
