Today's a good day because we get new music from Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O and producer Danger Mouse.
Their new collaborative single "Woman" arrived Tuesday, the latest preview of their upcoming album Lux Prima, which is out March 15 on BMG. The smoldering new cut follows the title track, which was released back in November.
"'Woman' came like a bolt out of the blue when we were in the studio,” says Karen 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."
The singer adds: "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."
