New song from “Where the Wild Things Are” soundtrack


By now, everyone has heard of Spke Jonez’s upcoming film, Where the Wild Things Are. The movie, which comes out October 18th, was adapted from Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s book. Anyway, Karen O (of Yeah Yeah Yeah’s fame) has assembled a group of musicians, dubbed “The Kids” to help her compose the soundtrack. Taken from the soundtrack’s Myspace,

these include Tristan Bechet (Services), Tom Biller (co-producer with Karen O and member of Afternoons), Bradford Cox (Deerhunter), Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs), Aaron Hemphill (Liars), Greg Kurstin (The Bird and the Bee), Jack Lawrence (The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs, The Greenhornes), Oscar Michel (Gris Gris), Imaad Wasif (New Folk Implosion, Alaska), Nick Zinner, (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and an untrained children’s choir.

I’m most interested in that children’s choir. I think it will add the perfect touch to the innocence and wonder showcased in the book. Be sure to check out that Myspace to hear the first single, “All Is Love.” The album will officially hit stores on September 29th.
