After hearing samples that were intermittently dropped over the last few months, NPR is letting the whole story of Rome unfold with a full stream of the sonic brainchild of Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi. Featuring the vocal stylings of Jack White and Norah Jones, the LP sees the two producers combine the sounds of their star singers with the musicians who formerly made up Ennio Morricone’s orchestra to create an album that pays homage to Italian films of the ’60s and ’70s. The 15-track effort can be heard here. Rome is scheduled to hit stores May 17th via Capitol Records.
