Danger Mouse to produce new Beck albim

Friday, March 7th, 2008

According to HARP Magazine and confirmed by Brian Lebarton and JMJ, Danger Mouse will be producing Beck’s new album.

Brian @ stewoo:

Was waiting for you all to find out already!!! I was seriously beginning to doubt your detective work…

Some of us popped in at different times, don’t know exactly who. I was there for two fun filled days. Picture a supergroup album of Yanni, John Tesh, Michael Bolton, Kenny G, Phil Collins, David Hasselhof and Donny Osmond and you can kind of get an idea of what the record won’t sound like.

JMJ @ stewoo:

Boo-yah. There it is.

I think it’s gonna be a sick record. Danger is really enjoying working with B. And yes, my connection is that I was the musical director for Gnarls Barkley; I put that band together and played bass at The Roxy and Coachella, before I had to bail and start all the work for “The Information” tour. That’s when our boy Cedric from Remy Zero took over as bass player and occasional stormtrooper.

Sorry we were a bit late on this, still trying to sort some things out over here. Thanks to everyone who emailed.
