To close out the credits on his forthcoming flick, Frankenweenie, Tim Burton solicited Karen O for her vocal expertise. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs vocalist is quite the perfect fit for the track, which of course is the exact match for a Burton project. So while the movie won’t hit theaters until October, you can enjoy this piece via the stream below. Also, see what Karen had to say regarding the song:

Tim [Burton] wanted an unconventional unconditional love song. My music inspiration came out of the same era of B movie fright film references sprinkled throughout the film. I went in the direction of exotica and calypso stylistically because it’s quirky, good vibes music of that era and when you throw in a theramin solo it’s a marriage made in heaven. I remember Beetlejuice introducing me to the genius of Harry Belafonte’s calypso record so I wanted to give a nod to that too. We ended up with a love song for the end of the film to the film! Frankenweenie is so special, it’s an unbelievable honor to be involved with it.
