Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ frontwoman Karen O has teamed up with producer Danger Mouse for an upcoming collaborative album, and they’ve shared “Lux Prima,” which is the title track off of the new LP.
The epic nine-minute single surrounds Karen O’s vocals in an extravagant space-like synth based intro and outro. “With ‘Lux Prima,’ we were really looking for a place rather than a sound,” Danger Mouse explained according to the Rolling Stone. “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.”
Listen to the sultry, electronic bluesy track below.
“After making music for the past twenty years and embarking on making this record with Danger Mouse I knew a couple things,” Karen O explained in a statement. “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.”
Lux Prima will get a limited edition 12-inch white vinyl release on December 14th.
