Watch: Karen O Video for solo track ‘Rapt’

Check it out:

In describing Crush Songs, Karen O said in a handwritten note:

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.

Crush Songs is out on 8 September via Cult Records.
