O wrote the music and lyrics for ‘The Moon Song’ for writer-director Spike Jonze’s romantic sci-fi drama, ‘Her.’

Before working with Jonze on ‘Her,’ O worked with the acclaimed filmmaker on his 2009 adaptation of ‘Where the Wild Things Are.’ She co-wrote original songs for the adventure drama’s soundtrack, and received a Grammy nomination for the featured song ‘All Is Love.’ She also also contributed to numerous other soundtracks, including ‘frankenweenie,’ ‘The Girl with the Dragon tattoo’ and ‘I’m Not There.’ She has also released four albums with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, three of which have also been nominated for Grammys.
