Album: RomeReleased: 2011
Rome is a spaghetti western-inspired album by Italian film composer Daniele Luppi with producer and one half of Gnarls Barkley Brian Burton (aka Danger Mouse). The record was recorded in several sessions between 2005 and 2010 at Rome's Forum Studios, a facility Ennio Morricone helped found, and features musicians that have worked with the soundtrack composer.
Jack White and Norah Jones provided the main vocals on the album. Jones sings on three tracks: "Season's Trees," "'Black" and "Problem Queen." She told Q magazine of her involvement: "Brian played me some of the music and explained his ideas for it. I really liked it and we got along well, so I thought it seemed like a fun thing to do. When I recorded my songs, Jack wasn't in the studio but we all get along and have a mutual respect, I think."
Luppi also arranged the strings on Broken Bells' Dark Night of the Soul, a collaboration album between James Mercer of The Shins and Brian Burton.
