"My Saint" short film starring Alex Zhang Hungtai of Dirty Beaches and featuring Karen O as a photographer's assistant. But rather than returning with a new full-band effort, bandleader Karen O has again struck out on her own, releasing a new track called "Yo!" The song and the film make up two-thirds of a "three-pronged artistic endeavor" that's a collaboration with luxury fashion company Kenzo. For now, hear the song and watch Amirpour's accompanying film below. It's a project, and the culmination of creativity erupting from KENZO's Spring/Summer 2018 collection. "We talked about Sayoko being the historic muse, and Ryuichi, who we love and are obsessed with, being our modern muse", says Humberto. The torch was then passed to Yeah Yeah Yeah's front-person Karen O. Karen composed a profound narrative with "YO!" My Saint' recorded in collaboration with United Kingdom soul singer Michael Kiwanuka for a short film of the same name by French luxury fashion label Kenzo.

She added: "I wanted there to be something authentically romantic about it in some kind of slightly unconventional way". A female musician and a female director.
