The Queen of New York and the frontwoman of The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s will be releasing her first solo album later on the year called Crush Songs.
Karen O has always stayed busy outside of her day job, she famously had an Oscar nomination for her work on the Spike Jonze’s Her, and she composed the soundtrack for film Where The Wild Things Are, another collaboration with Jonze. But Miss O has yet to make her own an album just for our listening pleasure.
O posted on her website this hand written note, which tells of her reasons behind the record.
Crush Songs will be out September 8th in the Uk and will be released on The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas‘ label Cult. Available to pre-order here
