The latest installment in Karen O and Danger Mouse’s collaboration is a groovy exhibition of O’s otherwise riotous vocals. Abandoning much of the acridness of her past with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, “Turn the Light” places O’s subdued voice in a punchy straightforward groove as gossamer backing vocals highlight an ethereal quality to the song.
“Turn The Light” is the latest single to be released from Lux Prima, a full-length collaborative album between O and Danger Mouse (whose clientele has included artists from Adele to Gorillaz). The album is set to be released through BMG on March 15th. Until then, listen and enjoy “Turn the Light” below.
