"Where the Wild Things Are" Soundtrack Streaming Now! Karen O, Kids & Monsters! Listen!


The Spike Jonze movie version of Where the Wild Things Are hits theaters on October 16th. Chances are you’ve seen the trailer and gotten goosebumps or cried or sighed or gushed. It looks soooo goood! (And a colleague here at work already saw the film and said, “Yes, it is soooo good.” More on that later.)

Now you can hear the soundtrack, whipped up by the genius Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who assembled an indie-all-star band, called The Kids (which includes Bradford Cox of Deerhunter, the Liars’ Aaron Hemphill, The Dead Weather’s Dean Fertita, Jack Lawrence from The Raconteurs and Karen’s YYYs cohorts Brian Chase and Nick Zinner) to perform the songs. And yes, she got a bunch of children to sing along, too.

Also worth noting: Check out Spike Jonze’s awesome blog about the film and other arty things: We Love You So.

Listen below… And watch the film’s trailer after the jump!
