Star-studded Danger Mouse Album Scrapped

Superproducer DANGER MOUSE has been forced to scrap his upcoming collaboration album following a legal dispute with his record company.
The Gnarls Barkley star - real name Brian Burton - teamed up with rockers Sparklehorse and legendary filmmaker David Lynch to produce a 13-track album, featuring contributions from Iggy Pop, The Strokes' Julian Casablancas, The Flaming Lips, and The Pixies.
The CD was to be accompanied by a photography book created by Lynch.
But now the record, titled Dark Night Of The Soul, will not be released, following a legal spat with record label EMI.
Although Burton has refused to comment on the nature of the dispute, he has shown his fury over the decision by going ahead with plans, but replacing the record with a blank disc carrying the label "For Legal Reasons, enclosed CD-R contains no music. Use it as you will."
A spokesperson for the star tells NME.com, "Danger Mouse remains hugely proud of Dark Night Of The Soul and hopes that people lucky enough to hear the music, by whatever means, are as excited by it as he is."
