News: Dark Night of the Soul Streaming In Its Entirety From NPR

The release of Dark Night of the Soul, the intriguing collaboration between Sparklehorse and Danger Mouse, has been hung up by an unknown legal dispute with EMI. While the project is being self-released by Danger Mouse as a book-and-CD package featuring photos by David Lynch, the included CD is blank and recordable, ostensibly intended to hold Dark Night of the Soul tracks as found on torrent sites or other non-official sources.

Short of downloading something that may never actually see an official release, you can now head over to NPR for a stream of the entire album. The project features a variety of vocalists, with artists as diverse as Gruff Rhys, Suzanne Vega, Iggy Pop, Julian Casablancas, Frank Black and Nina Persson.

Thanks to alert SSM follower Ross for the tip.

UPDATE: Some kind soul (ha ha) has reverse-engineered the mp3s out of the NPR stream.
