Karen O

Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Karen O has covered Led Zeppelin’s ‘The Immigrant Song’ for the Trent Reznor produced soundtrack of the upcoming American movie version of ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’, which is something I’d like to hear. And hurrah, now I can.

The cover has surfaced online, or at least a 90 second version of it has, set to a trailer for the movie. It doesn’t seem to cut off at the end, so I don’t know whether there will be a longer version on any resulting soundtrack release. Karen has Robert Plant’s wailings off to a tee, and Reznor’s more electronic backing works well too – definitely worth a listen.
