Karen O Announces Debut Album 'Crush Songs'

Karen O has announced that she will release her debut solo album titled 'Crush Songs' later this year.

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman has signed to Strokes' frontman Julian Casablancas' very own Cult Records, and will release Crush Songs on September 5 via Kobalt Label Services.

"So excited, lucky and proud to be involved with such a classic album," said Casablancas. "I just wanna listen to it all day. Karen is an all-time great."

"When I was 27 I 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." Karen O added.

A statement reads: "Recorded in 2006 and 2007, the record is an intimate collection of lo-fi, bedroom recordings in the vein of Karen’s Oscar-nominated 'The Moon Song'."
