Danger Mouse Does Adele
Overheard hears that Danger Mouse (real name: Brian Joseph Burton), 38, has locked down an imprint deal with Columbia Records. The star producer’s label will be called 30th Century, and he already is shoring up an initial roster, says a source. Always one to multitask -- his collaborations have included Gnarls Barkley with Cee Lo Green, Danger Doom with rapper MF Doom, Broken Bells with The Shins’ James Mercer, and he’s producing the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ new album -- Danger Mouse has been working with Adele on her hotly anticipated third studio album. Whether his production handiwork makes it onto the project remains to be seen. A rep for the producer insists the ink’s not dry on 30th Century, but a Sony insider says it’s being kept under the radar.
