Stream Karen O’s Debut Solo Album, ‘Crush Songs’
Fans of Karen O should be preparing to fall in love all over again -- or at least start scribbling her name on notebooks.
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman is set to release her first solo album, 'Crush Songs,' next week, but NPR is streaming it right now. Written and recorded in 2006 and 2007 when the singer was 27, the album features intimate, lo-fi bedroom recordings in the vein of her Oscar-nominated 'The Moon Song' from Spike Jonze's sci-fi love story, 'Her.'
She posted to her website, “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.”
