Earlier today, The Walkmen's Walter Martin premiered his romantic duet
featuring Karen O, and before the sun set, the lady of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs set loose her own lovey hymnal—a re-recording of "The Moon Song", her contribution to the Oscar nominated soundtrack of Her
, featuring Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig.
"'The Moon Song' was written and recorded in the most humble circumstances," Karen O told Rolling Stone
. "I wrote the song as a duet. I was really excited at the prospect of getting to record it with a male vocalist. Ezra was super cool and open, he slipped into character like a champ and damn he's got the goods."

A special three-song EP of "The Moon Song" will be available this week on iTunes.
