Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O Has A Solo Album On The Way

Singer's solo debut will drop on September 9.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O has her own album on the way.

The singer — who has been with the rock group since its formation in 2000 — announced on Wednesday (June 25) that her debut solo album, Crush Songs will be released on September 9 in the U.S. via Cult, Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas’ label.

And — as the title suggests — it sounds like she won’t be straying far from the deeply personal topics that she explored on Yeah Yeah Yeahs hits like “Maps” and “Cheated Hearts” and on her Oscar-nominated “Her” track, “The Moon Song.”

“When I was 27 I was crushed a lot. I wasn’t sure I’d ever fall in love again. These songs were written and recorded in private around this time,” Karen O wrote in an announcement on her website. “They are the soundtrack to what was an ever continuing LOVE CRUSADE. I hope they keep you company on yours.”
