"Poor Song" is a companion of sorts to "Maps
," which finds lead singer Karen O sifting through the ashes of her breakup with Angus Andrew. The pair were a New York City indie rock power couple - he fronts a band called Liars - but it didn't work out. She told Mojo
she wrote the song "to help myself out, deciding to choose love over fear of love."
"It's just a personal self-help message from us to anyone who wants it," she added. "Did I mention it's from the bottom of my heart?"
