Karen O Releases the First Video Off Her First-Ever Solo Album

by Abby Schreiber

Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O is gearing up to release her debut solo album, Crush Songs, this fall and today she's shared the first track and video from the project, "Rapt." The clip, directed by her husband Barney Clay, features the singer in a voluminous red gown floating underwater; it's a suitably meditative accompaniment to the lo-fi, woozy song. The video's production designer, K.K. Barrett, also worked with Karen on the artist's 2011 opera, Stop the Virgens, and received an Oscar nomination for his production design work on Her.

Crush Songs is out via Cult Records on September 9
