This week on All Songs Considered, we've got an exclusive premiere from a record whose origins date back five years, and whose inspirations go back decades more. Rome is a collaboration between producer Danger Mouse and film composer Daniele Luppi, whose shared love of classic Italian film music became the basis for an album that plays like a futuristic spaghetti western score. Much delayed since the two began work in 2006, Rome will finally see release on May 17 — and we'll stream it as a First Listen the week before. Until then, you can hear "The Rose With a Broken Neck," featuring vocals from Jack White, on this week's show.

Also on the program, two more exclusive premieres: a soulful, down-tempo number from cellist and singer Ben Sollee and some raucous garage-punk from Mexico's Le Butcherettes. Plus: Last week's song premiere from Cults gets All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen thinking about the orchestral pop sound of the late 1960s, and where its echoes can be heard today.
