We woke up this morning–or went to bed last night, can’t remember which–to news that made us reconsider if we were actually awake: Mick Jagger and Damian Marley have apparently joined forces in a group called Super Heavy that also includes celebrated Indian composer A.R. Rahman (of Slumdog Millionaire fame, if you’re American), and Joss Stone (who, you will recall, worked with Jr. Gong on the Distant Relatives project with Nas). The group was conceived by Dave Stewart, who those of us who remember the ’80s will recognize as the dude in the Eurythmics with Annie Lennox. According to Rolling Stone, the band has apparently been quietly recording for 18 months in a Los Angeles studio.
