Karen O & Danger Mouse share “Turn The Light” from collaborative album Lux Prima
Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O has teamed up with producer Danger Mouse for a new collaborative album, Lux Prima, that comes out this Friday. We’ve heard two singles over the last couple months, “Woman” and the album’s title track,” and ahead of the release they’ve shared a third one, the 90s R&B-inspired “Turn The Light.”
The new song is accompanied by an Apple Music interview with Zane Lowe that gives us a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the duo’s new music. Karen O and Danger Mouse had been wanting to collaborate for years, but it was only recently that both artists found the time to make it happen. “There was no roadmap for this whatsover,” says Karen O — instead, the collaborators dove into making the record and figured out their direction and shared style as they went along. Listen to the song and interview below.
