Trent Reznor, Karen O team up for 'Immigrant Song'

Posted By on Tue, Dec 13, 2011 at 10:11 AM

I've heard plenty of hype about the movie The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but I'm more interested in it because of the Trent Reznor/Atticus Ross combination responsible for the soundtrack. Ross and Reznor won a Grammy for their work on The Social Network.

If the release of their collaboration with Karen O is any indication, there could be another Grammy in their future. The trio released a video for their cover of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song." If you're going to cover Plant, Page and Co., you'd better do it well.

Not as industrial as you'd might expect, the song fuses an electronic backbeat to Karen O's sweet-yet-spooky vocal style and tinges of keyboard lightning strike at the right moments. Check it out:
