Karen O Covers The Doors, Radiohead At London Gig [WATCH]
Last night (Oct. 4) at London's Bush Hall, singer-songwriter Karen O added two special covers by The Doors and Radiohead to her setlist.
O, who's also the lead vocalist for Yeah Yeah Yeahs, snuck in a take of "Indian Summer" by The Doors and "High and Dry" by Radiohead during her show filled with songs off her new record, Crush Songs, NME reports. Check out the video below.
The singer talked about her new album last month with The Independent. "I have friends who are producers who've been trying to get me to do a very produced, upbeat kind of 'Karen-O-goes-solo-dance-revolution-record'," she said. "But there's so much of that out there in the world. It doesn't seem like there's a whole lot out there ... about just, like, navigating through your love life .... " O also admitted that some of the tunes were inspired by her breakup with then-boyfriend/director Spike Jonze. "He's in there somewhere," she said about the album. "But probably less than people think; there are other significant exes in there too. Heartbreak is one of the feelings that makes you feel most alive. I mean, it totally reduces you to rubble, but you don't feel it very often in your life, and once you're settled, you're settled, so who doesn't want to revisit that melodrama and rekindle some of those feelings?"
