Crush Songs, the collection of lo-fi bedroom songs that Yeah Yeah Yeahs leader Karen O recorded a few years ago, is coming out in a week. Until this morning, the only song we’d heard from the album was the soft, wispy “Rapt.” But now, Karen has shared a similarly soft and wispy number called “Day Go By,” which, it turns out, is not a cover of the Dirty Vegas song from the car commercial. It’s a lovely little number, though, and Karen O’s voice is one of our great expressive instruments. Listen to the song below.
Crush Songs is out 9/9 on Cult.
