Gaaaah. Go downtown; buy and hat; and hold the eff ON. Here’s a very strange video for the song that’s been running through my brain since I first heard it — “The Immigrant Song” by Trent Reznor and Karen O.
The official and full version of “Immigrant Song,” the awesome collaboration between Yeah Yeah Yeah‘s front woman Karen O and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross hit the internet last night. People were so excited to hear it, the Null Co. site crashed.
Reznor offered up some info on the upcoming soundtrack release.
“For the last fourteen months Atticus and I have been hard at work on David Fincher’s “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo”. We laughed, we cried, we lost our minds and in the process made some of the most beautiful and disturbing music of our careers. The result is a sprawling three-hour opus that I am happy to announce is available for pre-order right now for as low as $11.99. The full release will be available in one week – December 9th.
You have two options right now:
Visit iTunes here where you can immediately download Karen O’s and our version of Led Zepplin’s “Immigrant Song”when you pre-order the soundtrack for $11.99. You will also be able to exclusively watch the legendary 8-minute trailer you may have heard about (no purchase necessary obviously). We scored this trailer separately from the film, BTW.
Visit our store here . We’re offering a variety of purchasing options including multiple format high-quality digital files, CDs and a really nice limited edition deluxe package containing vinyl and a flash drive. In addition, RIGHT NOWyou can download a six-track, 35 minute sampler with no purchase necessary.
Or… Live the dream and visit both! Atticus and I are very proud of the film and our work, we hope you enjoy.
Just let it be said that both Brittani and DivaJulia would tearfully welcome the $300 signed full-meal deal, thankyouverymuch.
The fabulous lead singer of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is celebrating her 33rd birthday today. Known for her crazy stage outfits and stage diving, Karen O (Karen Lee Orzolek) is definitely one of the coolest ladies in rock.
We can look forward to hearing the full cover of Led Zeppelin‘s “Immigrant Song” that she did with DiC favorite, Trent Reznor for the The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo soundtrack. (We LOVE how a chick is the only one who could pull off covering this song…)
She also recently worked David Lynch on his solo album Crazy Clown Town. Yeah Yeah Yeahs also confirmed that they were working on a new album, can’t wait!
