Remember the trailer for Spike Jonze‘s upcoming film Her? Remember they pushed back the release date from November 20 to December 18? Well, the consolation prize is that we get to listen to Karen O‘s The Moon Song in the meantime. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs front-woman previously scored Jonze’s Where The Wild Things Are. For Her Spike hired Arcade Fire.
This song is very quiet, sweet and melancholic. I don’t know what the tone of the film will be like, but it does seem in tune with the atmosphere of Spike Jonze’s previous films and it certainly works in the trailer. Now that I’ve seen The Bling Ring this is definitely my new most anticipated of the year!
I recently discovered the live version of Sonny Moore’s song called Moss. Much to my surprise I couldn’t find it on YouTube.
What’s special about this song is that it features a piano track that isn’t on the original. Sonny’s voice sounds as beautiful and crystal clear as it does in the studio, so this is well worth checking out!
