Tim Burton’s spooktacular Nightmare Before Christmas is getting a 3-D makeover and theatrical re-release this month, and to compliment the visual upgrade, Burton commissioned a group of artists to cover Danny Elfman’s original soundtrack. Fiona’s contribution is a somber affair, with weeping strings that make it fit-for-Burton and a lyrical theme Fiona knows well: ill-fated love, expressed with disappointment and plenty of melancholy.
