Following the release of the back in November, and have now confirmed details of their collaborative album - also titled ‘Lux Prima’.

The record will be released on 15th March via BMG, the result of years of discussion about working together, and actually doing so following the birth of Karen’s son.

They’ve also shared a second track from the album, ‘Woman’.

“Woman came like a bolt out of the blue when we were in the studio,” says Karen. “We did a first pass where I was blurting unintelligible words and Danger Mouse and I were like, ‘Dang! That was intense.’ 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 f*ck with me. I’m a woman now and I’ll protect that inner girl in me from hell and high water.”

The track listing is:

‘Lux Prima’
‘Ministry’
‘Turn The Light’
‘Woman’
‘Redeemer’
‘Drown’
‘Leopard’s Tongue’
‘Reveries’
‘Nox Lumina’
