Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Karen O will be releasing very first solo album titled Crush Songs on September 9th, 2014
Karen O who formed Yeah Yeah Yeahs has recently been busy with other projects aside from her main one. She wrote The Moon Song for Spike Jonze’s 2013 film, Her, which garnered an Oscar nomination. She also wrote and performed the soundtrack for Where the Wild Things Are, another Spike Jonze film.
Crush Songs (out Sept. 9), is about exactly that, her past crushes. She explains on her website:
“When I was 27 I was 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.”
