Bring on the Bells

We're finally getting a taste of the new collaboration between James Mercer of The Shins and Danger Mouse.  Dubbed Broken Bells, the new act has readied a ten track slab of tunes due out March 9, 2010 called The High Road.  Early adopters can purchase the record in all the usual formats (cd and vinyl options) or as a special limited edition music box.  Those curious but not sold on proceedings can dip their toes in the lovely waters for the cost of a simple email and receive an immediate download of lead track "The High Road" for a limited time today only prior to its full digital release on iTunes tomorrow.  It's a lovely song that seems a logical step from the last Shins record with the obvious, umm, bells and whistles on the production side you've come to expect from a Danger Mouse project.  I'm really looking forward to the full release.  Get that download now over at the Broken Bells site.
