Karen O and the Kids' 'Where the Wild Things Are' track debuts on MySpace
They may no longer be a couple, but director Spike Jonze and Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O continue to collaborate. Their latest project? His much-anticipated live-action film version of the classic children’s book Where the Wild Things Are, due in theaters October 19.
O’s first song for the soundtrack, “All is Love,” bows today online (you can buy it digitally on iTunes starting tomorrow), and you may be familiar with a few of the Kids along for the ride: among them, YYYs bandmates Brian Chase and Nick Zinner, Deerhunter frontman Bradford Cox, Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age, Aaron Hemphill of the Liars, and Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, the Dead Weather). Plus, some real lower-case kids in the choir.
Stream the track now on their MySpace, and watch the preview (with its Arcade Fire “Wake Up” accompaniment) below. What’s your take on the whole enterprise, readers — childlike wonder or childish one-off?
