Karen O on Monday released a new version of her Oscar-nominated contribution to the Her soundtrack.
With the first rendition of "The Moon Song" up for Best Original Song, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman has now teamed up with Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig for a beautiful duet of the same track, fulfilling the vision the singer had in mind when she first wrong the song.
“I wrote the song as a duet,” she told Rolling Stone. “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.”
Listen to the new version below (via Rolling Stone), which precedes a three-track "Moon Song" EP due on iTunes later this week.
