The long-awaited album, Dark Night of the Soul by Danger Mouse and the late Mark Linkous, aka Sparklehorse, is released to the public on July 13. KCRW Music Director Jason Bentley joins Danger Mouse (Brian Burton) and one of the many album collaborators, director David Lynch, on this special edition of the Politics of Culture.
Songs from this beautiful, haunting record - featuring a remarkable roll call of guests - were leaked in 2009 but never officially released. The album has become a tribute to co-writer Sparklehorse.
Dark Night of the Soul can be streamed entirely and for a limited time only at KCRW.com/AlbumPreview.
The New York gallery viewing of David Lynch’s photos will be at the Morrison Hotel Gallery (313 Bowery, New York, NY 10003)
