‘Crush Songs’ Album Cover
Stereogum gives us a vague hint of what to expect…
an LP of lo-fi bedroom songs that she recorded in 2006 and 2007. According to a press release, those songs will sound something like “The Moon Song,” her Oscar-nominated contribution to Jonze’s Her.
Spin elaborates on the subject and setting…
As O tells it in a handwritten note posted to her website, which you can also read below, the songs were written and recorded in private when she was around 27 years old, a time when she didn’t know if she’d ever fall in love again. Now 35, she’s married to director Barnaby Clay.
