Opening Ceremony’s Sounds Of Love-------
Valentine’s Day approaches. Are you ready?
We’ve been pulling together a whole host of ways to make it special, from red-hot lingerie sets to sweet caramels. Now, for the soundtrack, you can turn to Opening Ceremony, which debuts the first in its series of music-player “Playbuttons” this Monday with Love Songs <3 OC, a curated mix of love songs selected by the store. The rechargeable, pin-backed button (pictured above)—an homage to the band buttons showgoing kids sport—comes preloaded with love songs from the likes of the Magnetic Fields, Björk, Owen Pallett, Girls, and Coconut Records (the band of store pal Jason Schwartzman). It's rounded out with two previously unreleased tracks: a remix of Vampire Weekend's "White Sky" by New Look, previewed exclusively here, and "Body" by Karen O's low-fi side project, Native Korean Rock. Proceeds from the affordable player ($25) go to Musicians on Call, a nonprofit that brings music to bed-bound hospital patients. If you're in the mood for love, don't wait—the run is limited to 500.
