Karen O Reveals Video For First Solo Single ‘Rapt’.

The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s front-woman submerges herself in brand new video.

Stop whatever you’re doing, because Karen O has unveiled her first solo single and video, as her debut solo album release creeps ever closer. In an exclusive for Pitchfork earlier today (28th July), O premiered the video, which sees her lolling around in an underwater environment.

Rapt‘ is taken from her first solo album, ‘Crush Songs’, which will be released via Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records label on September 9, and it’s worth noting down in your diary. ‘Rapt‘ gives an intimate look at how ‘Crush Songs’ will pan out. On announcing it’s release, Karen O admitted to the personal nature of the new record: ”When I was 27 I crushed a lot. I wasn’t sure I’d ever fall in love again. These songs were written and recorded in private around this time. They are the soundtrack to what was an ever continuing love crusade. I hope they keep you company on yours.”.

Described as a “collection of lo-fi, bedroom recordings”, ‘Crush Songs’ will be firsty available for pre-release as a limited, special vinyl edition, including Karen’s own personal drawings and handwritten lyrics.
