On July 28 singer-songwriter Karen O released an official music video for the single "Rapt" on her official YouTube channel. The video was directed by Barney Clay and it was produced by the company Partizan. You can watch Karen O's official "Rapt" music video here.

The video is just under two minutes long and it begins with Karen O underwater. She is wearing a red dress and throughout the video she is turning, and spinning around under the water. The video ends with Karen O's red dress floating down without her inside it. Karen's underwater instructor for this video was Greg Tash.

According to an official press release the production design is from K.K. Barrett who previously worked with Sofia Coppola and Spike Jonze. The song "Rapt" is the lead single from Karen O's upcoming debut studio album, "Crush Songs". The album was recorded in 2006 and 2007. According to the press release, "The record is an intimate collection of lo-fi, bedroom recordings in the vein of Karen’s Oscar-nominated 'The Moon Song'".

Karen O is most known for being the lead vocalist of the indie rock band Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Since their formation in 2000 the band has released four studio albums with the most recent being "Mosquito" in 2013. Their albums "Fever to Tell," "Show Your Bones," and "It's Blitz" were all nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Alternative Music Album category.

Karen O's debut solo album "Crush Songs" features 15 tracks and it is set to be released Sept. 9 via Cult Records. That record label is helmed by The Strokes' frontman Julian Casablancas.
