Rome, The New Album from the New Supergroup

The  new supergroup, Rome was brought to my attention via the cover of the April/May issue of Relix Magazine. I must admit I was intrigued with this mix of artists. The collaboration commands both my attention and deep respect.

I pre-ordered their CD today on Amazon for $9.99, the price was too good to pass up as was the free shipping 😉

Rome is the latest project from producer Danger Mouse (aka Brian Burton) and frequent collaborator Daniele Luppi. Burton and Luppi traveled to Rome’s Forum Studios—founded in part by the great film score composer Ennio Morricone—and recorded the music straight to tape. For of all its cinematic qualities, what follows is not the soundtrack to an imaginary movie or an homage to the great Italian film composers but a complex nuanced pop record with intensity and darkness featuring help from Jack White and Norah Jones.
