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.
