A solo LP from Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O is long overdue and, judging by her new song “Rapt,” Crush Songs is worth the wait. Via Brooklyn Vegan:
“Rapt” is under two minutes of bedroom singer/songwriter stuff with no more than her roughly recorded voice and a few guitar chords. Watch the video, directed by her husband Barney Clay with production by her Stop the Virgens collaborator KK Barrett, below.
Crush Songs is set for a September 9th release via Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records.
