Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman and solo soundtrack artist Karen O has yet to release a proper full-length of her own, but that will change with the arrival of Crush Songs later this year. Today, she's given us the first proper taste of the LP with a video for the song "Rapt."
As could be expected from a Karen O album called Crush Songs, the track's a stripped-down, precious acoustic song complete with lyrics like "love's a fucking bitch." The track arrives with a video that showcases the artist underwater. It was directed by O's husband, Barney Clay, and features production design by K.K. Barrett.
Watch the video for "Rapt" above. Crush Songs arrives on September 9 through Julian Casablancas' Cult Records.
