Karen O has unveiled a new solo song called 'The Moon Song', written for director Spike Jonze's upcoming movie Her.

Click below to listen to the full version of the acoustic track. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer previously contributed music to Jonze's film Where The Wild Things Are. You can also download the new song for free via SoundCloud.



Karen O will join Arcade Fire on the soundtrack, after it was reported that the Canadian band will provide the score for the film. The project is not the first time Arcade Fire have worked with Jonze, having given him an acoustic version of their song 'Wake Up' for a trailer for Where The Wild Things Are. Jonze also took inspiration from their third album 'The Suburbs' to direct a short 30-minute movie, Scenes From The Suburbs, for the band.

Starring Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson, Her is also set to feature performances from Rooney Mara, Amy Adams and Olivia Wilde. Following the story of a man who falls in love with a computer operating system, it will be released in selected cinemas on November 20.

Speaking about the film at the LA Film Festival earlier this summer, Jonze described it as: "a movie set in the slight future of LA and Joaquin Phoenix's character buys the world's first artificially intelligent operating system... It basically turns into a human, this entity, this consciousness, on his computer."
