Karen O and Willie Nelson Team Up To Cover Queen & Bowie's 'Under Pressure'


Unexpectedly Amazing. And it turns out a one Mr. Johnny Knoxfille is the reason this all went down! Ha! Wild! Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O and Willie Nelson totally transformed "Under Pressure" in a new cover that was prodcued by Dave Sitek. Karen O said

"I can’t listen to this song without tearing up every time Willie comes in"

Via Rolling Stone:

In a statement, O explained the origins of the collaboration, saying she’d reached out to Nelson, via Johnny Knoxville, in the hopes that he’d sign a National Independent Venue Association open letter to Congress. Out of “sheer audacity,” as O put it, she also asked Knoxville to tell Nelson that if he ever wanted to record a duet, she was “ready and willing.” When Knoxville got back to her, he relayed a message from Nelson’s daughter, Amy, saying the country legend was more than willing to sing on a track.
