'ROME', a new album by Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi

ROME, a new album by Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi
Producer-composer Danger Mouse and Italian composer Daniele Luppi have provided us with a remarkably familiar sound in the new album ‘Rome’.  Inspired by the haunting soundtracks of Ennio Morricone, the project features many of the surviving performers of classic '60s and '70s scores and the vocals of Norah Jones and The White Stripes' Jack White.  The album-opening "Theme of Rome" features Edda Dell'Orso from the soundtrack to 1966's The Good, The Bad And The Ugly.
Danger Mouse may be more familiar to you as half of the group Gnarls Barkley, another project band. 
The music on this album is ethereal and accessible to almost any audience.  And for me, I find it appealing the listen to project bands to hear performers in something different than their normal element. Give the album a listen for free on NPR Music and see what you think, you may find a new soundtrack for your commute!
