I first heard this song about a month ago on Sirius XMU, and recognized the voice, but couldn’t quite place where I knew it from. Well, it turns out that Broken Bells is the new collaboration of Danger Mouse (using his real name Brian Burton) and James Mercer (lead singer of The Shins).
Their self-titled album together, as Broken Bells, is set to be released on March 9th. I haven’t heard anything from it, other than this first single, “The High Road,” but I’m really looking forward to hearing the rest of the disc.
Just this past week or so, the video debuted for “The High Road” so we chose it for our music video of the week. Check it out and let us know what you think.
