Karen O was approached by the film's director Tim Burton with the intent of the singer writing a song especially for the film. The singer has said that her song, "Strange Love" was inspired by "the same era of B-movie fright film references sprinkled throughout the film. I went in the direction of exotica and calypso stylistically because it’s quirky, good vibes music of that era, and when you throw in a Theremin solo, it’s a marriage made in heaven. I remember Beetlejuice introducing me to the genius of Harry Belafonte’s calypso record, so I wanted to give a nod to that, too."
