New Music – Karen O & Danger Mouse – Lux Prima
A new album by Karen O & Danger Mouse, I hear you say. I wonder what that will sound like? Well, on first listen it’s plush, gentle and quite lovely! See what you think of title track Lux Prima below.
Lux Prima, the collaborative album from icons Karen O and Danger Mouse, is set for release this Friday, March 15 via BMG. The album will be available digitally, on CD, and vinyl.
“’Woman’ came like a bolt out of the blue when we were in the studio,” says O. “We did a first pass where I was blurting unintelligible words and Danger Mouse and I were like ‘Dang! That was intense. What’s that word I keep saying? Woman.’ The atmosphere was volatile with it being just after the election. A lot of people felt helpless like you do when you’re a scared kid looking for assurance that everything is gonna be alright. I like to write songs that anyone can relate to but this one felt especially for the inner child in me that needed the bullies out there to know you don’t fuck with me. I’m a woman now and I’ll protect that inner girl in me from hell and high water.”
