    This Sunday the final hour of Now Playing from 7pm is all about Karen O because of the news which broke surrounding her involvement in the Frankenweenie soundtrack – which also features the likes of Robert Smith from The Cure and Passion Pit.

    Well, we’re going to have the world exclusive of Strange Love by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ front woman on the show!

    But we can’t wait until then to play you the track which will close Tim Burton’s new film – so we’ve got a little clip for you here.

    In an interview with Rolling Stone, Karen O said: “Tim 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 theremin solo it's a marriage made in heaven. We ended up with a love song for the end of the film to the film!

    “Frankenweenie is so special, it's an unbelievable honour to be involved with it.”
