Only the tracks "Strange Love" and "Praise Be New Holland", are actually used in the film. Artists Grace Potter, Kerli, the Plain White T's, and Robert Smith were previously featured on Almost Alice, a similar compilation album consisting of tracks from and inspired by the Tim Burton film Alice in Wonderland by various artists.


Karen O was approached by the film's director Tim Burton with the intent of the singer writing a song especially for the film.[4][1] 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."[5]
