Karen O And The Kids - "All Is Love"

Never mind that there's a fever pitch of hype behind the new Where The Wild Things Are, that the preview includes The Arcade Fire, or that Spike Jonze is the director. On top of all that, they've gone and roped in Karen O to provide some original material for the soundtrack.

Billed as "Karen O And The Kids", the band's first single from the soundtrack has just dropped, and is streaming over at myspace. The tune finds the Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman in ultra-falsetto, with a distinctly Arcade Fire influenced backing track. It's quick, it's cute, and it's fun - probably about right for the pace of the movie. That being said, it's not exactly breaking any musical barriers, at least not to our ears. You be the judge.
