Ah, supergroups. As anticipation mounts for the dynamite collaboration between Brian Burton (aka Danger Mouse) and Italian composer Daniele Luppi, fans keep receiving more and more goodies to tide them over until the duo’s Rome project hits streets on May 1st. Last month, the Jack White-sporting single “Two Against One” surfaced, and this morning (via Some Kind of Awesome), everyone’s ears can warm up to the midnight lounge crooner, “Black”.
As the B-side to the Record Store Day exclusive single for “Two Against One”, this one finds celebrated vocalist Norah Jones wading through some silky undertones, all with the signature finesse of Brian Burton’s knack for ’60s-sounding production. It’s not sweeping, but just under that. You’ll want a glass of wine, that’s for sure. Oh, it’s only noon? Didn’t see that. Oops. Regardless, enjoy this slowly.
