Perhaps not surprisingly, Karen O’s rendition is a much janglier lo-fi affair.
It might not be quite the Yeah Yeah Yeahs rock record you’d expect, but Karen O is streaming her new one.
Crush Songs is due out Sept. 9.
The video shows Karen O hangin’ underwater, fading in and out of shots so as not to drown, all while the song, “Rapt,” unfolds its minimal self.
The singer’s first solo album, Crush Songs—out September 9 via Julian Casablancas’ label, Cult—will be more in the vein of her GRAMMY-nominated “The Moon Song” from Spike Jonze’s movie, Her.
From the movie ‘Her’ (note the matching socks).
Jared Leto, U2 and Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are all up for Oscar gold this year at the 86th Annual Academy Awards.
