Karen O & Danger Mouse Announce Collaborative New Album & Share ‘Lux Prima’ Single
Yeah Yeah Yeahs vocalist Karen O and musician/producer Danger Mouse released the song “Lux Prima.” The track will appear on the duo’s forthcoming debut album, which currently lacks a title or release date.
A limited 12-inch vinyl edition of “Lux Prima” will be available at participating independent record stores on December 14. The white vinyl release will feature an etched B-side.
“‘Lux Prima’ is the first song we wrote for the record,” stated Karen O. “After making music for the past 20 years and embarking on making this record with Danger Mouse I knew a couple things: one was that the spirit of collaboration between us was going to be a pure one, and two was that the more I live the less is clear to me. When you create from a blurry place you can go places further than you’ve ever been. I think we both were excited to go far out.”
“With ‘Lux Prima,’ we were really looking for a place rather than a sound,” Danger Mouse stated. “It was our first shared destination so we thought we’d take our time getting there. The song itself is a bit of a journey, but all the parts felt like they needed each other. So it became our blueprint in a sense. We wrote the album in deliberate isolation. Along the way asking ourselves lots of questions. We didn’t find many answers, but found it was more about the questions themselves.”
