Legendary Lovers (3:44)

Cover of PRISM

From PRISM and 1 other release

Legendary Lovers is a worldbeat and folk song, which contains a bhangra beat and draws influence from country music, while its instrumentation is composed of tablas, oriental strings, a coral sitar, and a double violin. Its lyrical content combines Eastern philosophy with mild sexual references, expressing “eternal passion” and also referencing the romances of infamous fictional and historical characters.

The dreamy EDM-lite tune features Indian percussion and lyrics focusing on Eastern religious concepts such as infinity and karma. “I think that we had a lot of fun on ‘Legendary Lovers,’” Bonnie McKee told MTV News. “I feel like I was able to pull a lot of imagery from really early [Eastern-influenced] stuff that I did , and it was a lot of fun to get into the Bollywood sort of theme ‘cause I know she’s always had an obsession with that to. I think they’re pretty classic themes that she goes over. When you’re writing love songs, it’s always forever; they seem to always last throughout time.”

The song is expected as a single in the second half of 2014.
