During an appearance on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic to talk about the critically-acclaimed film Her, writer/director Spike Jonze, Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and production designer KK Barrett had something very special up their sleeves.
With Jonze and Barrett on guitars and Karen O on the microphone, the trio offered a sweet version of the Oscar-nominated track “The Moon Song,” which was written for the movie.
Karen O also recently released an EP featuring “The Moon Song” as a duet with Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, and the film depicts stars Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson singing it. But, KCRW’s in-studio performance marked the first time Karen O, Jonze and Barrett came together to perform the tune.
