The pair will perform their new single on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on March 18. The performance will be directed by Spike Jonze, who has been a longtime collaborator of Karen O.
In addition, they have developed a “multisensory installment” entitled “An Encounter with Lux Prima,” from April 18-21 at Los Angeles’ Marciano Art Foundation. The exhibit will be a communal listening experience soundtracked by the album, incorporating audiovisual technologies for a one of a kind experience.
Lux Prima, the first collaboration from the iconic Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman and the legendary musician-producer, is due March 15 on BMG. Stream “Woman,” which Rolling Stone calls “potent” while Stereogum praises O’s “vocal fireworks,” here and the album’s title track here, which The New York Times lauded, saying “Oblivion sounds luxurious and blissful.”
Lux Prima will be available digitally, on CD and gatefold LP with exclusive merchandise bundles from the artist store. Pre-order now and get “Turn The Light,” “Woman” and “Lux Prima” immediately here. An exclusive LP version with alternate colorway will be available at independent record stores on release day
