New Tomb Raider Song Written By Karen O

November 1, 2015

Karen O of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs wrote a song for the soundtrack Rise Of The Tomb Raider.


In an interview with Rolling Stone, she said, “You know how Gloria Gaynor has her I Will Survive? I always wanted to do my version of that and this was it.”

“I think they wanted to bring on the melodrama. They wanted something emotional with a dramatic build. It’s kind of the theme of Lara’s creation myth, the moment that defines her becoming an icon. It was really juicy stuff for me. I’m really into making melodramatic songs.”

O has contributed to soundtracks before, including Spike Jonze’s 2009 film Where The Wild Things Are. The track she wrote for Jonze’s 2013 film ‘Her’ bagged her an Oscar nomination.

O gave birth to her first child last month and her band Yeah Yeah Yeahs are currently on hiatus.
