Karen O & Willie Nelson Cover “Under Pressure”


Under Pressure,” one of the greatest rock n roll songs of all time, was originally released as a single in 1981 by Queen and David Bowie, and later added to Queen’s 1982 album Hot Space. It’s a song that has so much meaning to so many people and was an instant classic. It’s been covered many times over the years, and the latest comes from Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Willie Nelson.

The inspiration came from the current political climate and the upcoming presidential election when Karen asked Willie to join her for a collaboration. She said, “A friend on the board of NIVA (National Independent Venue Association) asked if I knew of any country artists who could sign a letter to Congress asking them to help save independent venues from going extinct due to Covid. I recalled my buddy Johnny Knoxville being friends with Willie so I asked to see if he could check in with Willie about it, and then out of sheer audacity I added ‘and if he ever wants to do a duet I’m ready and willing!'”
