Danger Mouse is quoted in the announcement saying:

“With ‘Lux Prima,’ we were really looking for a place rather than a sound,” says Danger Mouse. “It was our first shared destination so we thought we’d take our time getting there. The song itself is a bit of a journey, but all the parts felt like they needed each other. So it became our blueprint in a sense. We wrote the album in deliberate isolation. Along the way asking ourselves lots of questions. We didn’t find many answers, but found it was more about the questions themselves.”


Stores carrying the 12″ release of “Lux Prima” can be located at the Record Store Day website.
