Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman and fashion queen Karen O has booked a pair of intimate residencies —one in New York City and one in Los Angeles— in support of Crush Songs, her upcoming solo effort, which drops September 9.
Karen O will play NYC from September 9 through September 12. Then, the singer will jet off to L.A. from September 17 through 19. She has booked two dates in London and one in Berlin in early October, as well. #GlobalCrushSongs.
Tickets are at Karen O's website.
"I'm very pleased to announce that I'll be performing Crush Songs to some very intimate audiences," the singer said. "If you're in the mood for love, please come join my crush odyssey at these limited engagements. I apologize in advance that these shows are so few but I guess that makes them all the more special if you can make it SO don't miss out! LUV KO."
If you are not in the cities hosting the residency gigs, there will be unique Karen O listening experiences for the album, which was recorded, bedroom-style, in 2006 and 2007. It, uh, celebrates the crushes that she has gone through.
On August 27, 21 cities worldwide will play host to exclusive first listen sessions of Crush Songs' deluxe vinyl edition. The sessions unfold for private audiences inside homes and apartments and will be overseen by Sofar Sounds, which plots secret shows around the world. Go here for more info.
Listen to "Rapt," which is a "Crush Song."
