He and film-producer/recording artist Daniele Luppi just finished working on a spaghetti western inspired (such a rad idea) album, Rome to be released in May.
I am obsessed with the songs that have leaked so far, especially the one with Jack White! The other is with Norah Jones is amazing as well.
Back in November, we reported that producer extraordinaire Danger Mouse and Italian composer Daniele Luppi were at work on Rome, a spaghetti western-inspired project featuring contributions from Jack White and Norah Jones. Now, the resulting LP has a release date: May 17, via Capitol Records, in the U.S. The tracklist is below.
The album was recorded at Rome's Forum Studios (which was founded in part by composer Ennio Morricone), with the assistance of musicians that performed Morricone's original scores for spaghetti western classics The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West. White sings on three songs on the record ("The Rose With the Broken Neck", "Two Against One", and "The World"), and so does Jones ("Season's Trees", "Black", and "Problem Queen"). Soprano singer Edda Dell'Orso (who also contributed to the music for The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly) is also featured on the LP. Music video director Chris Milk has been named the "Visual Director" for the project. Rome:
01 Theme of Rome
02 The Rose with the Broken Neck
03 Morning Fog (Interlude)
04 Season's Trees
05 Her Hollow Ways (Interlude)
06 Roman Blue
07 Two Against One

I was obsessed with Dark Night of the Soul a couple years ago. Now I find it quite.. eerie. Even Little Girl. I swear it gives me the creeps to listen that record .. I think it's Mark's suicide what pretty much ruined it for me (that sounds a little insensitive, I know), cause I was still very attached to that album when it happened.
Really looking forward to listen to the new album though!..
I agree, the Dark Night of the Soul album did take on an even darker (no pun intended) vibe since Mark's death
I still love it though.
Being a massive Strokes/Julian Casablancas fan Little Girl was my favorite as well. I also was crazy about the David Lynch collaborations and my second favorite was this one, Revenge, with the Flaming Lips:
