The Yeah Yeah Yeahs front woman contributes a track to Tim Burton's stop-motion living dead dog comedy which you can check out (along with the full soundtrack lineup) after the jump.
The singer-songwriter explains that when she was brought on to compose a track for the film, she was in part inspired by another Burton movie, Beetlejuice and the Calypso songs of Harry Belafonte. Her song has a more lilting Hawaiian sound to it, but still, it's an interesting addition. Give it a listen:
Karen O's track will join the likes of Kerli, Neon Trees, and Skylar Grey in an alternate soundtrack inspired by the film with a separate release for regular Tim Burton composer Danny Elfman's score.
There's also a cover of the Ramones' "Pet Sematary" by the Plane White T's about which I'm feeling very dubious.
Here's the full soundtrack lineup:
“Strange Love” – Karen O
“Electric Heart (Stay Forever)” – Neon Trees
“Polartropic (You Don’t Understand Me)” – Mark Foster
“Almost There” – Passion Pit
“Pet Sematary” – Plain White T’s
