karen o rapt videoYeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O has a new video for the song "Rapt," which will be on her forthcoming first solo album, Crush Songs. You can download the song now on Amoeba.com, and you can preorder the album on LP now.

Directed by her husband, Barney Clay, the gorgeous video shows Karen O underwater in slow motion, occasionally illuminated and sometimes obscured. I recommend pausing every now and then; each shot seemingly could be an impressionist painting.

Check out the video below:

The last we heard from Karen O, she was nominated for an Oscar for "The Moon Song," co-written with K.K. Barrett and director Spike Jonze for Jonze's film Her. No Karen O tour dates have been announced just yet.
