Late last month, Karen O unveiled the first track off her debut solo ‘Crush Songs’. The track entitled ‘Rapt’ is a stripped-down, youthful and captivating track with haunting melody and evocative lyrics. The video directed by Barney Clay, features the Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman drifting underwater consumed by evanescent romance. Karen O will have a series of “listening parties” globally, as well as intimate dates in New York and London. Crush Songs will be released September 9th via Julian Casablancas’ label Cult. Enjoy the video below and be sure to check out their site as well as Karen O’s for more info.
