Karen O and the Kids

30 Sep

A lot of people are excited about the upcoming film adaptation of ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ and I’m quite excited too – but for a slightly different reason.

The soundtrack features 13 original songs by Karen O. She’s worked with a choir and a whole bunch of friends from bands like QOTSA, Raconteurs, Dead Weather, Liars, New Folk Implosion to name a few to create original music for the film. The music was released earlier this week under the name Karen O and the Kids.

I’ve not got round to hearing the album yet but it is something that I am looking forward to hearing probably more so than I am interested in seeing the film to be honest!  I’ve heard good things about the album already and it’s no surprise seeing as I think Karen O is a genius when it comes to writing melodies and ‘It’s Blitz’ is easily one of my favourite albums of the year.

This is the first single off the soundtrack:
