Karen O and Danger Mouse have finally revealed details behind their forthcoming collaborative album Lux Prima. The album is due for release on March 15 via BMG and the second single, “Woman,” has been shared. The straightforward rock stomper puts the Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman’s vocals on display as she screams and croons.

“Woman” came like a bolt out of the blue when we were in the studio,” explains O. “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.”

“Woman” follows the 9-minute trip-hop title track, shared in November. Lux Prima made KEXP’s Most Anticipated Albums of 2019 list. Listen to “Woman” below.
