Karen O Contributes To The Soundtrack Of “Frankenweenie”
Listen to “Strange Love”, from the new Tim Burton picture
It looks like Karen O has developed quite a taste for animated movie soundtracks. She already strut her stuff with The Kids on the score for “Where the Wild Things Are ”, and now she's back at it with “ Strange Love”, a new song that will be part of the soundtrack for Tim Burton's “ Frankenweenie”. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer told Rolling Stone magazine that she found inspiration in “the same era of B-movie fright film references sprinkled throughout the film. I went in the direction of exotica and calypso stylistically because it’s quirky, good vibes music of that era, and when you throw in a Theremin solo, it’s a marriage made in heaven. I remember Beetlejuice introducing me to the genius of Harry Belafonte’s calypso record, so I wanted to give a nod to that, too.” And with great results, we would add.
