Karen O and Willie Nelson Share Cover of Queen and David Bowie’s ‘Under Pressure’

Willie Nelson and Karen O have teamed up for a cover of Queen and David Bowie’s ‘Under Pressure’. The stripped-back rendition was produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek and features guitars from  Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner, Imaad Wasif, and Johnny Hanson, as well as background vocals from Priscilla Ahn. Check it out below.

“I’ve heard this song countless times without processing the gravity of what Bowie and Freddie were singing about, maybe because their performances are so exhilarating you get swept away in the high of that duet,” Karen O explained in a statement. “Our cover was meant to be more intimate but just as saturated with the power of love.  I can’t listen to this song without tearing up every time Willie comes in, one of the purest voices which of course reflects a pure heart, and I get to sing alongside it. I hope the song brings as much light to the listener as it has to me in dark times.”
