Karen O “Rapt”
aka the first song off her first solo album!
Crush Songs may be Karen O's debut solo album, but that didn't stop her from enlisting the help of her husband, Barney Clay. The duo teamed up to create the music video for "Rapt," an addictive willowy track with a simplistic, daydream-inducing melody.
There's not much to the video—the Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman essentially just floats in murky green water while the track plays—but it somehow captures the essence of the song. After all, love does take us to some pretty strange places.
Crush Songs comes out September 9 via Julian Casablancas' label, Cult Records. You can pre-order the LP (and score "Rapt" as a free download) beginning tomorrow on iTunes!
