The song comes from O’s forthcoming ‘Crush Songs’ collection, released through Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records on all of your favourite formats on September 8th. It’s available for pre-order from tomorrow (July 29th), for the weirdoes who like to do such things.
The Strokes frontman has called ‘Crush Songs’ a “classic”, adding: “Karen is an all-time great.” This threadbare taster for the album isn’t quite suggesting that kind of status, but who knows what will come next? If O’s established anything in her career to date, it’s the certainty that she’ll rarely do the same thing twice.
‘Rapt’ is directed by Barney Clay with production design from the Oscar-nominated KK Barrett (Her). Find Karen O online here.
