Moody Jack White & Danger Mouse Collabo Leaks
"The Rose With the Broken Neck" is from the producer's spaghetti western-inspired project 'Rome.'
Songs from Rome, the spaghetti western-inspired collaborative album from star producer Danger Mouse and Italian composer Daniele Luppi, featuring vocalists Jack White and Norah Jones, continue to leak online in advance of its May 17 release. The latest: “The Rose With the Broken Neck.”
A slight departure from mysterious, more dramatic tracks like “You Against One” and “Black,” “The Rose With the Broken Neck” is a moody and melancholic jam with xylophone, slow-grooving bass, and brushed drums, anchored by White’s lovelorn lyrics: “Lonely I see / Lonely I feel / Lonely I bleed / Lonely I trust / I must be the rose with the broken neck.”
