For all you miserable Yeah Yeah Yeahs fans out there, the band may be laying low but don’t forget there’s a bright side to that. Frontlady Karen O has a new record, Crush Songs, out this September on Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records. She’s teamed up with her husband and filmmaker Barney Clay for the screen adaption of her sighing new single “Rapt,” a stripped-back, cloud-watching affair whose melody is as solid and elusive as O’s breath. Watch the video below, and note that you can purchase Crush Songs on iTunes beginning tomorrow and receive a free download of the track.
