Where The Wild Things Are: Soundtrack and Film Release

The long awaited and much hyped film adaptation of Maurice Sendak's children's classic "Where The Wild Things Are" is set to be released Oct. 16th.

The soundtrack by Karen O and The Kids for the film has been out since Sept. 29th. As something of a 'wild thing' herself, Karen O, enlisted the help of fellow musicians, Bradford Cox (Deerhunter), Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs), Aaron Hemphill (Liars), Greg Kurstin (The Bird and the Bee), Jack Lawrence (The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs, The Greenhornes), Oscar Michel (Gris Gris), Imaad Wasif (New Folk Implosion, Alaska), Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), and an untrained children's choir to fill the ranks of 'The Kids'.

Can't wait to go see the flick next week. In the meantime check the trailer for the film and check a couple tracks from the soundtrack.

  1. Love me some wild rumpus. Is it weird that I'm getting super pumped for this movie? I must've read the book about 2,500 times growing up.
