Danger Mouse became famous for his mashup of The Beatles’ White Album along with Jay-Z’s “Black Album”, but what he’s done next will likely give a big eff you to his record label.
Due to legal issues, EMI has stopped the release of “The Dark Horse Of The Soul”, but the producer and one-half of Gnarls Barkley has got other plans. He plans to release the album with a limited edition 100-page book along with a CD-R inside. He says fans can acquire the album “through other means”, meaning file sharing sites.
All copies of the CD-R will read: “For Legal Reasons, enclosed CD-R contains no music. Use it as you will.”
I guess that’s one way he’s sure to be heard. Will you buy it?
