Crush Songs Karen O

One of rock ‘n’ roll’s finest frontwomen, Karen O, is streaming her brand new solo record, Crush Songs, now.

The album, which is due out Sept 9 on Julian Casablancas‘ imprint label Cult Records, is a slew of lo-fi and mysical numbers written and recorded between 2006 and 2007 but held for release until now. As Karen’s first full-length studio record, listeners get to see into the mindset of where this undeniably talented songwriter was at the time.

The record’s artwork contains Karen’s own hand drawings, according to The Guardian, which also spoke to Karen about the new release:

“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,” she told The Guardian.
