Karen O continues the runup to her new solo album, Crush Songs, with a lovelorn lullaby for sleepless mornings. “Day Go By” is another tape-hissy acoustic ballad, flying past in about two minutes as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer insists that “she’s burning for you” and that, if a doctor absolutely must be notified, “just tell him that my pain is gone.” The track follows the video for the similar-sounding, more immediately striking “Rapt.” Crush Songs, which is part of Cassette Store Day 2014′s release lineup, is due out on September 9 via Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas’s Cult Records. Karen O is also playing a short run of small-scale dates starting on the release date. Find the song and the lyrics below via Urban Outfitters.
