Karen O and Danger Mouse share new single ‘Woman’ and confirm details of new joint album

“We did a first pass where I was blurting unintelligible words."

Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O has shared ‘Woman’, the latest single to be taken from her joint album with producer Danger Mouse.

The track is the second offering to emerge from ‘Lux Prima’, which is now confirmed for release on March 15. You can listen to it in full below.

Describing the track, Karen said: “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.’

“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 f*ck with me.  I’m a woman now and I’ll protect that inner girl in me from hell and high water.”

It comes after the pair previously debuted the title track in November last year.
“After making music for the past twenty 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,” said Karen O of the album.

“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.”
