Karen O and Danger Mouse have followed the November release of their debut single as a duo, “Lux Prima,” with the details of their forthcoming collaborative album of the same name. Lux Prima is due out March 15 via BMG, but you can hear the latest new song from the album, “Woman,” right now.
Where album opener “Lux Prima” was an epic and shapeshifting nine-minute odyssey, “Woman” is a swaggering stomper that never slows down long enough to wander, clocking in at just under three minutes of unapologetic self-assurance. The track comes accompanied by a visualizer co-directed by Warren Fu and Julian Gross, and shot by Wyatt Troll, featuring abstract textures designed and shot by Davy Evans.
O said of the duo’s new single in a statement:
“Woman” came like a bolt out of the blue when we were in the studio. 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.
