About Frankenweenie Unleashed! by Various Artists:
Double LP Album Features Two Additional Bonus Tracks!
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 compilation of music from and inspired by the film. This limited edition vinyl version of the album also contains two additional bonus tracks by Finger Eleven and Sleeper Agent.
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. 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.
