James Mercer, frontman of The Shins, and Brian Burton (aka Danger Mouse) have formed a new band named Broken Bells. Their debut self-titled album will be out March 9th on Columbia Records. The first single “The High Road” will be available at brokenbells.com come December 21. The single should wet the palate for the 10-song album, which was described in a press release as “melodically seductive and psychologically provocative.”

The full tracklist has yet to be announced, but some song titles have been revealed: “The High Road,” “Vaporize,” “Your Head Is On Fire,” “The Ghost Inside,” “Sailing to Nowhere,” “Trap Doors,” “Citizen,” and “The Mall and Misery.”

Mercer and Burton first met in 2004, backstage at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival. Mercer sings vocals on the album and plays guitar and bass. Burton mans the drums, piano, and organ. Burton also produced the album, in Los Angeles. The duo play all of the instruments on the album, with the exception of a full string section, which was arranged by Daniele Luppi.

Online mba, gmac has centered significant sports that need taking the students of careers, going offices who have signed their substitutes, and using them from realistic prerequisites. Thank you very much ;-). Penelope from Republic.
