Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie will – at the very least – have an awesome song on its soundtrack. Karen O of The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s is contributing the tune “Strange Love” to the film and, while I haven’t heard it, I’ve never disliked anything she’s done so my hopes are high. It’s been three years since the double punch of the YYY’s “It’s Blitz” and O’s soundtrack to Where The Wild Things Are, so I’m hoping the experience of doing this song gets her jazzed for a new YYY’s record (word is that one is coming but I’m not sure if they’ve hit the studio yet). They’re one of my all time favorite bands and they always change so much with each record I can’t wait to see where they go next.
O told Rolling Stone, “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.”
“Strange Love”, which plays over the end credits of the film, will be featured in the “Frankenweenie Unleashed” compilation hitting September 25th.
