Karen O has provided her musical talents for several films lately, including remaking Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” for David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, as well as writing her own piece (“All is Love”) for a previous Spike Jonze film, Where the Wild Things Are. Her new song, “The Moon Song,” will appear in Jonze’s latest effort, Her, starring Joaquin Phoenix. The song is lovely, and is filled with the same haunting loneliness that we felt in the first trailer for the film. In short, it seems to fit right in.
I’m not sure it is the type of song Oscar will go for – though it will probably be in discussion throughout the season – but it is a pretty tune nonetheless. Her will be in theaters beginning November 18.
