Danger Mouse, David Lynch, and Sparklehorse: I Like This

Here's something interesting from Wired:

For [Danger Mouse's] new album, Dark Night of the Soul (due in June), he collaborated with indie rocker Mark Linkous (aka Sparklehorse) and filmmaker David Lynch. The power trio...reinvented the album as a guerrilla art project. "When formatting changed from vinyl to cassette, packaging got smaller. With MP3s, it's completely gone," Burton explains. "I wanted to get back to a time when packaging was a visual fantasy about the music and created a mystery for people to unpack."
In case you were worried that he might have been left out, Iggy Pop supplied some lyrics.
