Ms Karen O has confirmed the title of her fancying-boys-inspired first solo LP ‘Crush Songs’. She’s going to release it on 8 Sep via a new label deal with Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records, the same Cult Records that allied with Kobalt Label Services this very week. As illustrated here, it’ll be available pre its general release via a limited signed vinyl pressing in a “sunburst” shade, replete with hand written lyrics and scribbles by O.

Kaz says of the “intimate” and “lo fi”-billed album, which actually dates back to 2006: “When I was 27 I 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. They are the soundtrack to what was an ever continuing love crusade. I hope they keep you company on yours”.

Cult founder Casablancas adds with pride: “So excited, lucky and proud to be involved with such a classic album – I just wanna listen to it all day. Karen is an all-time great”.
