DJ DangerMouse on Grey Tuesday

From Billboard: Danger Mouse Speaks Out On ‘Grey Album’

While Burton understands that such a recording is “scary” for labels, he says this type of thing can’t be stopped. “Stealing music is wrong. [Illegal] downloading is wrong,” he explains. “But people protested about this record because it was not made commercially available.”

When asked by Billboard if there was any one thing that has surprised him about all the media attention, Burton said, “Every day is unbelievable. I’m surprised that this many people like the CD. What I made was a f***ed-up recording. It confirms that people want that which they cannot have.”
