Karen O joins Arcade Fire on new Spike Jonze film ‘Her’

karenosqYeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O will make a guest appearance on the score for the new Spike Jonze film Her.

Karen O is to perform on the track ‘The Moon Song‘, which has been specifically written for the movie. The news comes after Arcade Fire were last week announced as the main contributors to the score, linking up again with Jonze having previously provided an acoustic version of ‘Wake Up‘ to his 2009 film Where The Wild Things Are.

In addition, the director also worked on a 30-minute short entitled Scenes From The Suburbs which was inspired by Arcade Fire’s highly decorated 2010 third album ‘The Suburbs‘.

Her stars Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson and is set for a limited release on November 20th. “A movie set in the slight future of LA and Joaquin Phoenix’s character buys the world’s first artificially intelligent operating system,” Jonze said when speaking at the LA Film Festival. “It basically turns into a human, this entity, this consciousness, on his computer.”
