Where The Wild Things Are Soundtrack

Today marks the release of the beautiful soundtrack to Where The Wild Things Are. Just like the feeling of the movie, this soundtrack by Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and co-produced with Tom Biller of the Afternoons is all about friends who all collaborated together to make something wonderful.

Karen O collaborated with many talented musicians known as “The Kids” in the making of this. The list: Bradford Cox of Deerhunter, Nick Zinner and Brian Chase who are bandmates in the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Dean Fertita and Jack Lawrence (Queens of the Stone Age, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs), Aaron Hemphill (Liars), Greg Kurstin (The Bird and the Bee),  Oscar Michel (Gris Gris), Imaad Wasif (New Folk Implosion, Alaska) and an amazing childrens choir.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

You can pick up the soundtrack now at iTunes and Amazon and stream the whole thing over at imeem.

    I have to say I had my doubts. I didn’t love All is Love when I first heard it, but now I have the album on repeat and I would say it is a triumph. It’s just so evocative and raw and amazing! Emotionally taut. I feel like I should say more, but there aren’t really more words to say…
