When it comes to music, Spike Jonze has it down. In Her, his upcoming dystopian flick that takes place in a futuristic Los Angeles, he puts Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeah's Karen O., and the Breeders at the helm.

IndieWire released the full track listing of the soundtrack, which reveals there's a little ditty between Scarlett Johansson and Joaquin Phoenix in the mix. Karen O., who composed the score original songs for Jonze's Where The Wild Things Are, offers "The Moon Song" to Her. It's a song Johansson's character Samantha writes and sings in the film.

“Whenever I write music for Spike, I automatically start writing with a quality of innocence," Karen O. told Variety. "Maybe because Spike’s boyish nature reduces me to my girlish nature."

The film gets a limited release on Dec. 18 and a full release next year on Jan. 10 14. There's no concrete date for the soundtrack release yet.
