Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O and Danger Mouse have joined forces for a new project, and it's out today: the duo's joint album ‘Lux Prima’ is streaming online now.
"I didn't know what it was going to be; we didn't talk about it," says Danger Mouse of their collab in the April issue of Dork. "I prefer working that way and just seeing what happens. The first week we did [title-track] ‘Lux Prima', that showed us that it could be anything, go in any direction.
"If you do a nine-minute song with a huge instrumental, it was like doing art. I remember that we didn't have anyone expecting or waiting on us, there was just the two of us. We were playing a lot of 60s psychedelic stuff, soul and R&B from that same period. I always knew that I wanted her to get higher, get that soft, beautiful voice into more songs."
Check out 'Lux Prima' below, and pick up your copy of Dork after the jump.
Featuring Twenty One Pilots, Circa Waves, Karen O & Danger Mouse, Wallows, Nilüfer Yanya and more.
