Now streaming: the soundtrack to the new (very buzzed about) film adaptation by Spike Jonze of the Maurice Sendak classic story Where The Wild Things Are, penned by the Yeah Yeah Yeah's front-lady and friends, dubbed Karen O and The Kids .Put on your wolf costumes and let's listen!

The album features a bunch of guests, including other members of the YYY's Brian Chase and Nick Zinner, Bradford Cox of Deerhunter, Aaron Hemphill of Liars, Dean Fertita of Queens Of The Stone Age and The Dead Weather, Imaad Wasif, and more. While we are curious to see how Jonze managed to extend ten sentences into a feature length film, we're even more curious as to how these fourteen tracks will fit into crucial moments in the (kind of short) plot.


Where the Wild Things Are Soundtrack



The music is very childish, full of a kind of dark imagination, and sometimes borderline creepy, all things that seem to fit the interpretation of the book we've gathered from the previews. Has Karen formed the monsters of indie rock? Or are these monsters better banished to a forest across the sea of imagination? Afraid of monsters? Just remember, "inside all of us is a wild thing." -joe puglisi

UPDATE: Check out this teaser video of Karen O and The Kids (briefly) talking about the record:
