Filmmaker Spike Jonze has tapped Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner to help out on the soundtrack for his new short film, ‘I’m Here’. The musicians appear on the song, ‘There Are Many of Us,’ which was written and sung by Aska Matsumiya of the Sads.
The song, released Monday as an iTunes download, highlights the 30-minute Jonze short, which just made the rounds at Sundance. Subtitled ‘A Love Story in an Absolut World,’ the film was commissioned by Absolut Vodka and is about two L.A.-based robots who fall for each other, will see an online release next month.
Jonze fans and curiosity seekers alike can check out the ‘I’m Here’ trailer. In related news, L.A. Weekly reports that Matsumiya will release a solo EP under the moniker ASKA via Manimal Vinyl sometime this spring.
