Karen O Contributes New Track ‘The Moon Song’ To Spike Jonze’s ‘Her’

Written by Mike Hohnen on August 12, 2013

Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Karen O has contributed a brand new track to the soundtrack for the upcoming Spike Jonze film Her. The iconic director is putting a strong emphasis on contemporary music with fellow indie heavyweights Arcade Fire locked in to score the flick.

A snippet of Karen O’s contribution, a melancholy acoustic affair dubbed The Moon Song can be heard on the films official trailer from about the 1:27 mark. This won’t be the first time that the two have teamed up, with the vocalist offering a song to Jonze’s Where The Wild Things Are.

Jonze has really called in the favours for Her, as the new-album-expecting, BDO-headlining Arcade Fire owed him one for directing the 30-minute short film Scenes From The Suburbs for the band.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs are literally at an all-time high after being the first band ever to film a music video atop the Empire State Building for their track Despair. The band’s current album, Mosquito, is comfortably maintaining cruising altitude.
