We first mentioned the soundtrack to Spike Jonze’s 30-minute robot love story, I’m Here, when the ASKA-soundtracked trailer dropped in January, noting a collaboration by Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner and Red Hot Chili Peppers/Atoms for Peace bassist Flea on the film’s theme song, “There Are Many of Us,” as well as a then unknown contribution to the film’s score by Zinner as The Lost Trees. This week, Chocolate Industries announced the October 5 release of the I’m Here OST, a 9-track compilation that includes the above song and Of Montreal’s alternate (abridged) version of Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? jam “The Past Is A Grotesque Animal” with Zinner, as well as selections by Girls, Animal Collective, Sleigh Bells, and others.
The I’m Here soundtrack isn’t the only forthcoming record with ASKA’s song, however, as the LA-based Moonrats/Sads member will release it on her debut solo EP via Manimal Vinyl on November 10. Meanwhile, she is streaming the entire 7-song effort, including “There Are Many of Us” (track 3) on Bandcamp.
