Stars Proud of Western-Inspired Album


Jack White


Stars including Jack White, Norah Jones and Danger Mouse have spoken of their pride after finally completing an album inspired by classic Spaghetti Westerns.

The former The White Stripes rocker, Jack White has joined forces with a number of artists, also including composer Daniele Luppi, to create music in homage to films such as "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" and "A Fistful of Dollars".

The project, titled "Rome", was recorded with many musicians who played on the original film scores by Italian composer Ennio Morricone, famed for his "Spaghetti Western" soundtracks.

"Rome" was the brainchild of Gnarls Barkley star Danger Mouse - real name Brian Burton - and has been five years in the making.

The album is now set for release later this month and White admits the record has been a labor of love for all of the artists involved, telling Britain's The Sun, "'Rome' was one of the most fulfilling things I've ever done even though Norah and I were only there for part of the ride (by just recording vocals)..."

Norah Jones adds, "I never would've thought to do something like this without a movie but I think it's a great idea. It all flows so well. The album is a whole complete piece. And the musicians were so great. It's so exciting that we got to record with the real people who started all of this."

The project also reunited the Cantori Moderni choir, which sang on 1966's "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" score, and Danger Mouse admits it was an intense experience, "It was quite emotional. They'd not seen each other in decades and are now in their seventies. They were moved that we had recognized how important their sound was and it took them back."

The artists are now in talks to turn the album into a series of live shows.
