From creative genius Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland, The Nightmare Before Christmas) comes Frankenweenie, a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. A stop-motion animated film, Frankenweenie was filmed in black and white and rendered in 3D, which will elevate the classic style to a whole new experience. Presented by Disney, Frankenweenie is directed by Tim Burton, produced by Tim Burton and Allison Abbate, from a screenplay by John August, based on an original idea by Tim Burton.
Karen O has written an original song which will be featured in the end credits to Disney's highly anticipated movie, Frankenweenie, directed by Tim Burton. Strange Love is included on Frankenweenie Unleashed!, a 14-track compilation of music from and inspired by the film.
As singer/songwriter/composer and the lead singer for the rock band the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Karen O has collaborated with artists in music and film over the past ten years, including Spike Jonze, Trent Reznor, David Lynch, Flaming Lips, Barnaby Clay, Carter Burwell and many others. Karen composed the score for the acclaimed 2009 film Where The Wild Things Are (with Carter Burwell,) and she co-wrote the song All is Love (with Nick Zinner) which was nominated for a GRAMMY® Award and Golden Globe for Best Original Song for a Motion Picture. Most recently, Karen contributed vocals to the Trent Reznor produced cover of Led Zeppelin s Immigrant Song for David Fincher s feature The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Karen O told Rolling Stone, Tim [Burton] wanted an unconventional unconditional love song. My music inspiration came out of the same era of B movie fright film references sprinkled throughout the film. I went in the direction of exotica and calypso stylistically because it's quirky, good vibes music of that era and when you throw in a theramin solo it's a marriage made in heaven. I remember Beetlejuice introducing me to the genius of Harry Belafonte's calypso record so I wanted to give a nod to that too. We ended up with a love song for the end of the film to the film! Frankenweenie is so special, it's an unbelievable honor to be involved with it.
In addition to Karen O s Strange Love, the Frankenweenie Unleashed! collection features original songs and one cover inspired by the stop-motion film event. The diverse range of artists includes Robert Smith, Neon Trees, Mark Foster, Plain White Ts and Kimbra.

Remember the Disney records that used to have great books in them that told the story to the movie.
Well you get none.
No booklet, no liner notes, no photos, no color vinyl.
Not even a gatefold sleeve (and this is a double album).
Not even a digital download card.
For amazon's first vinyl exclusive, the boat was completely missed. Sunk.
Part of the allure of vinyl for me is the package. The color vinyl, gatefold double album, the opportunity to make it a package. Stickers, posters, lyric sheet... Something to enjoy more than just downloading a song or attempting to read the tiny print on a CD book.
Sure, I enjoy dropping the needle on this. But really? White inner sleeves? You couldn't even print up scenes from the movie on the inner record sleeve or made a collage of the artists performing the tracks?
When I listened to the album Frankenweenie Unleashed I also found som other good songs by other artists.
Maybe not all of the songs were great but I really like the CD.
Thank you for a very quick delivery !
