Dial 'O' for Animal Noises

Karen O has been busy in 2009. On top of releasing and touring 'Its Blitz' with the YeahYeahYeah's she's found the time to contribute animal noises to a song off the Flaming Lips new album. Unfortunately it's not Karen leaping around in the video.

She's also recorded a soundtrack to Spike Jonze's new film 'Where the Wild Things Are'. It's credited to Karen O 'and the kids'. The kids turn out to be members of the Raconteurs, the Bird and the Bee, Deerhoof and Queens of the Stone Age. This is how she described the album in an interview with NyLon magazine
“We wrote music that would be easy for kids to sing along with.  The songs have that innocence and spirit with poppy hooks here and there.  Simple, emotional, sweet stuff.”
