First Listen: Karen O. - "Strange Love"

First Listen: Karen O. – “Strange Love”

Frankenweenie Unleashed!

For the upcoming movie Frankenweenie (in theaters October 5), Karen O. of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs has written an original song for the film’s soundtrack titled “Strange Love”.  The soundtrack is slated for a September 25 release date and also features songs from Robert Smith (The Cure), Passion Pit, and a collaboration between Grace Potter and The Flaming Lips.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Karen O. had this to say about the song:

“Tim [Burton] wanted an unconventional unconditional love song. My music inspiration came out of 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 theramin 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. We ended up with a love song for the end of the film to the film! Frankenweenie is so special, it’s an unbelievable honor to be involved with it.”
