The film will be released on March 9 in the UK and April 6 in the United States. The digital album will also be released on the 9th, with a physical version to follow in the near future. You can listen to the two-minute composition below.
“This is a cue from the soundtrack to Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here,” said Greenwood in a tweet. “The score is a mixture of string music, electric guitar and some sparse rhythms – like this one.”
The film stars Joaquin hoenix as "Joe" in the story of a "traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, [who] tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe’s nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening." It's based on a novel by Jonathan Ames. View a trailer below.
Greenwood recently secured his first Oscar nomination for his work on the soundtrack for Phantom Thread. He confirmed that he’d be attending the ceremony in Los Angeles tonight (Mar. 4). “My wife thinks it’s quite ridiculous,” he said, as reported by NME. “But then I realized I was quite pleased with myself at the idea of not going, and I think it’s always good to resist that kind of urge, that sort of smirk. So maybe do the opposite to that impulse…. [But] no one wants to see sweaty version of me, shambling around, looking embarrassed.”
