New Karen O music

From Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie.

Kareno-detail_full_for_exchange

It seems like a long time since we heard a peep (that wasn’t an opera – can you believe she wrote an opera?) from Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O.

The New York-based singer/songwriter (aka Karen Orzolek) has just written and recorded a song for Tim Burton’s upcoming Frankenweenie. Maybe operas and movie soundtracks are O’s new thing, or maybe she’s just happily proving to all of us she’s no one-trick pony.

Says O of her song for Burton: “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 love that she’s paying homage to Beetlejuice and Harry Belafonte. Have a listen to ‘Strange Love over at http://www.nme.com/reviews/karen-o/13602.
