Karen O announces solo album

Karen O, the lead singer of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, has announced her debut solo album, Crush Songs, will be released September 9th.  She described the collection as bedroom lo-fi recordings.  The album will have a pre-release as a special edition with handwritten lyrics and some of Karen's drawings.

If Crush Songs sounds anything like the few acoustic versions of their hit songs, it's going to be a stunner.  Karen has such a delicate voice when not pushed by a driving beat and a chiming electric guitar, and any chance to hear it in that setting is going to no doubt leave many breathless.
