Karen O Gives 'Frankenweenie' a Hawaiian Sound With 'Strange Love'

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs front woman contributes a track to Tim Burton's stop-motion living dead dog comedy which you can check out (along with the full soundtrack lineup) after the jump.

The singer-songwriter explains that when she was brought on to compose a track for the film, she was in part inspired by another Burton movie, Beetlejuice and the Calypso songs of Harry Belafonte. Her song has a more lilting Hawaiian sound to it, but still, it's an interesting addition. Give it a listen:

Karen O's track will join the likes of Kerli, Neon Trees, and Skylar Grey in an alternate soundtrack inspired by the film with a separate release for regular Tim Burton composer Danny Elfman's score.

There's also a cover of the Ramones' "Pet Sematary" by the Plane White T's about which I'm feeling very dubious.

Here's the full soundtrack lineup:

“Strange Love” – Karen O

“Electric Heart (Stay Forever)” – Neon Trees

“Polartropic (You Don’t Understand Me)” – Mark Foster

“Almost There” – Passion Pit

“Pet Sematary” – Plain White T’s

“With My Hands – Kimbra

“Everybody’s Got a Secret” – AWOLNATION

“Immortal” – Kerli

“My Mechanical Friend” – Grace Potter featuring The Flaming Lips

“Lost Cause” – Imagine Dragons

“Underground” – Grouplove

“Building a Monster” – Skylar Grey

“Witchcraft” – Robert Smith

“Praise Be New Holland” – Winona Ryder

Frankenweenie will be in theaters on October 5th. You can grab the Frankeweenie Unleashed soundtrack on September 25th.
