Dark Night of the Soul

The album of tracks put together by Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley) and Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse), titled Dark Night of the Soul, looks like it might never see the (official) light of day thanks to 'legal issues' with EMI.

How is it that you could get so far - 13 tracks completed with quality collaborators from the Flaming Lips, Strokes, Iggy Pop, Shins, Vic Chestnutt etc; a teaser poster campaign at SXSX, a booklet of stills photos from David Lynch etc, and fall at this hurdle - what a waste.

The CD is currently (but perhaps not for too long) being streamed by NPR (although the site is pretty hard to bring up right now), apparently the only place where the album can be heard in its entirety. I am sure that if you dig around enough a Torrent copy of the CD could be downloaded - not of course that I have tried :)
