The Music Producers Guild awards shortlist was announced this morning with Danger Mouse and Jack White both being nominated for the International Producer of the Year Award.

Rome, released in 2011 on Lex saw Danger Mouse and Jack White collaborate with Danielle Luppi and Norah Jones to create a western inspired sountrack that took almost 5 years to complete.

Lastly, Damon Albarn, who recently contributed vocals to the JJ DOOM track BITE THE THONG is nominated for UK Producer of the Year.
